The Consulate of Mexico in Little Rock, Arkansas invites you to the Children's Drawing Contest "This is my Mexico". The call is open to receive drawings from June 9 to September 21, 2015.
The slogan "My favorite corner of Mexico" of the 19th edition of the contest can be inspired by the history, culture, art, food, its natural wealth, its people, or its traditional festivals.
You can search in books, library, internet or some place that you have been in. Get your imagination going. Participate and tell us!
What do you need? Be between 7 and 11 years old, and live outside Mexico. Draw or paint on cardboard 30x30 cm, 12x12 inch, brush, pencil, acrylics, watercolors, crayons or the material you want; signs your art work and write the date.
The drawings must be send to the Institute for Mexicans Abroad (IME, by its Spanish language acronym) through the Consulate of Mexico. The selection of the 10 winning drawings will be conducted by a panel of specialists in child artistic expression of CONACULTA. The results will be announced on October 30 at the consulate and on the IME website www.ime.gob.mx, @IME_SRE#EsteEsMiMéxico
