What do you want to be? The art contest for children kindergarten through fifth grade is underway.
Entries are being accepted until the end of October 2013 at City Hall and Bankers Trust. We are asking children to share — in art and/or written work — what they would like to be when they grow up and why. Please let your young ones know about this contest, and encourage them to enter this competition. The top prizes are $100, $75 and $50, and will be awarded along with undoubtedly many honorable mentions. All submissions will be recognized.
