SALT LAKE CITY — The Knights of Columbus’ Keep Christ in Christmas poster contest is a fun “and easy way to get young people in the community involved in the faith,” states the official guide for the poster contest.
Every year Knights of Columbus councils from parishes all over the Diocese of Salt Lake City sponsor the contest “as an opportunity to witness the creativity and optimism of the young people in the community,” states the Knight of Columbus invitation to the contest.
Local winners can advance to the national contest, which is part of the Knights of Columbus’ efforts to “promote Christmas and the season of Advent in their proper context,” according to the website kofc.org. Other Knights of Columbus activities that promote Advent and Christmas are Journey to the Inn, Spread the Light of Christ, and Crèche or Advent Wreath Blessing. 
All of the programs are centered on the Holy Family and the Nativity and the example that they give to the world.
“Conducting a Knights of Columbus ‘Keep Christ in Christmas’ poster contest is an excellent way to get young people of your community thinking about the true meaning of Christmas,” reads the invitation to the contest, which will run through Nov. 21.
The contest is open to children ages 5-14; the contest is divided into three age groups: 5-7, 8-10 and 11-14.For information about entering the contest, contact your parish.
