Easter Drawing Contest 2023 winners

  • April 7, 2023

Here at The Catholic Register, we make it a key part of our journalistic mission to find and communicate beauty even in a fallen world, which is why at the joyous Christian seasons of Christmas and Easter we save some of our pages for art created by elementary school students as part of our twice-yearly drawing contest.

This year we received an abundance of drawings for the Easter portion of the contest, once again all of them beautiful and obviously heartfelt images showing unique understanding of the Passion narrative, joyful creativity and above all love for Jesus Christ.

There are truly no firsts or lasts in the contest but the judges chose Maria Teresa Valenti to showcase our Grades 1-3 group, Eliana Antar, a Grade 5 student who was also chosen last year to represent the Grades 4-6 category, and Grade 8 student Sophia Della Rossa for our Grades 7-8 contest.

Our editors were so impressed with Sophia’s entry that it was chosen to grace the cover of this Easter issue.

Our thanks and congratulations go out to all who entered, and to the teachers and parents who helped guide and gather the contributions for us.
