Our art contest is back by popular demand! Italian Week is inviting Ottawa’s children and youth ages 4 to 17 to submit artwork inspired by what they love about Italian culture.
Leonardo da Vinci
We encourage children and youth ages 4-17 to submit their creations celebrating Ottawa’s Italian culture and heritage. Your submissions will be featured on social media — Tag us!
The deadline to submit is Friday, June 4, 2021. After all the entries are received, a judging committee will select the winners.
To make this accessible for all, we ask that all artwork be made on a standard letter size paper (8.5”x11”). Children and youth can use pencil crayons, paints, pastels, or mixed media. Take a photo with your artwork and submit it along with a completed form.
Following the success of our 2020 stories, Strega Nona returns by popular demand! This year, we will be featuring three exciting new stories— Strega Nona: Her Story, Strega Nona Meets Her Match, and Big Anthony: His Story.
Attendees will be entered into a random draw for their chance to win a gift basket valued at $100.00, which includes:
• Four books signed by a local Italian Author (Little Voice EN/FR, and The Lighthouse EN/FR)
• Two bookmarks
• Two art prints
• One pack of crayons
• Colouring pages
Thank you Amanda at Little Voice Books for generously providing this gift basket!
