HUDSON COUNTY – With school children throughout the county at home and learning through online instruction as a result of the COVID19 public health emergency, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez announced today the launch of a drawing and creativity contest geared toward inspiring young people to get creative.
The “How Much We Love Hudson County Drawing and Creativity Contest” is aimed at having children share what they love about their Hudson County town – from its people, to its places, to its sights, smells and sounds – through drawing, video, poems, and more. The contest is open to all students, grades pre-k to 12.
“We know community pride is strong in Hudson County and right now many people, children included, are missing some of the places, people and aspects of their community they miss most,” said Prosecutor Suarez. “We thought this was a great opportunity to combine a creative outlet with the ability to reflect on all the things you love about your hometown. Have fun and be creative.”
One winner from each municipality will be selected to receive a $25 iTunes gift card and be featured on the HCPO's social media channels.
Entries should be submitted via email to CreativityContest@hcpo.org by Friday, April 24, 2020 and more info is available at www.hudsoncountyprosecutorsofficenj.org/programs.
