POSTPONED: 16th annual Summer Activities Fair

The 16th annual Summer Activities Fair scheduled for April 14 has been postponed. If things return to “normal” quickly enough for there to still be summer activities, we will try to reschedule the event. It’s possible we could do a virtual event if it is not possible to pull off the actual event like in year’s past. Thanks and stay safe.

2020 Young Artists’ Competition

Community Education announces annual U.S. Bank art competition for students

 

(Bowling Green, KY) Community Education and U.S. Bank invite students in Bowling Green and Warren County to participate in the annual U.S. Bank Young Artists’ Competition.

This year’s theme is “Imaginary Places”. Warren County students in kindergarten through seniors in high school are encouraged to let their artwork show who they are, what they think about, dream about, or can imagine.

The winners will each receive $50 VISA gift cards from U.S. Bank. The original winning artworks will be displayed at the Warren County Public Library’s Smiths Grove branch from May 12th – June 30th and then at the Kirby branch for the month of July.

The official call for entries and entry forms have been sent to art teachers in all public and private schools in Warren County. This information is also available on the Community Education website, www.commed.us (click the Events pull-down tab) and on their Facebook and Twitter accounts. All artwork must be turned into Community Education by Wednesday, March 25 by 4 p.m. Parents/guardians can turn in their student’s artwork individually or you can collect them and turn them in as a group.

“We appreciate U.S. Bank for once again supporting the creative expression of the area’s students,” said Bill Oldham, Executive Director at Community Education. In addition to prizes for the winning entries, the teacher with the most qualifying entries will also receive a prize and recognition. “We would love to have artwork from every Warren County and Bowling Green city school,” Oldham said. The competition is also open to homeschooled students.

For more information email Oldham at boldham@commed.us or call the Community Education office at 270-842-4281.

Collecting Soccer Cleats

Do you have soccer cleats that are no longer used but do not know what to do with them?

 

Community Education is joining with Refuge Bowling Green to collect and redistribute soccer cleats through the Kentucky Ambassadors Soccer Club. If you or someone you know loves soccer but has outgrown cleats that are gently used or new, this would be a great way to recycle them and enrich the lives of other children.

 

Cleats can dropped off at the Community Education office, one of our school-age programs, or our summer camps.

 

Give back and share the joy of the game with others!
