This year, they are encouraging children from kindergarten to fifth grade to participate in the Flag Day Children's Poster Contest.

They are also encouraging children from sixth grade to 12th grade to participate in their first Flag Day Children's Video Contest.

Participants do not have to be Catholic Life members or of the Catholic faith to qualify. This contest is an opportunity for all children to express their creativity and originality while honoring a sacred American symbol.

The theme for this year’s poster and video contest is "The American dream gives us the right to pursue our own idea of happiness and success. Describe what your American dream is."

All entries must include the American Flag.

Three winners will be selected for the video contest. Winners will be awarded cash prizes for their outstanding submissions. The prizes are $500 for first place, $350 for second place, and $150 for third place. Judges score each poster submission based on the following criteria: originality, eye appeal, and theme.
