The Catholic Register is conducting its eight annual children's Christmas drawing contest. The top entry in each of 3 categories will receive a $75 gift certificate for a day at the movies. The winning drawings will appear in The Register's Christmas edition, Dec. 24. 

The contest is open to children in Grades 1 to 8. Entries must be original, in colour, drawn or painted on a page 8.5” x 11” or larger and illustrate some aspect of the birth of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels. We want paintings or drawings that depict the true meaning of Christmas so, please, no Santas or reindeer.
