CALL FOR ENTRIES! CTMC’s 6th Annual Kids Art Contest is Underway

Their work could be published in the CTMC 2020 CREATION Health Calendar


SAN MARCOS, TEXASCentral Texas Medical Center (CTMC) invites children ages 4 to 18 to create artwork for a 2020 calendar. Those whose work best demonstrates the CREATION Health principles will see their piece in the CREATION Health calendar.


“Each year, I am amazed by the creative ways our local children illustrate the CREATION Health principles,” said CTMC President/CEO Anthony Stahl. “It is such a unique way to get them thinking about overall wellness from a young age, and I am proud that CTMC can play that role in a child’s life.”


Annually, this calendar celebrates healthy living by focusing on each of the eight CREATION Health principles that help people live life to the fullest. CREATION Health is an acronym for the eight principles, which are: Choice, Rest, Environment, Activity, Trust, Interpersonal Relationships, Outlook and Nutrition.


“The Kids Art Calendar Contest is a great way for Hays County youngsters to express what health and well-being mean to them,” said Sonia Martinez, operations coordinator for the CTMC CREATION Health Institute. “This opportunity gives local kids the chance to use their artistic talents to educate our community members on how they can live a healthy lifestyle by practicing the CREATION Health principles.”


Each child participating in the contest must create artwork that illustrates one of the eight CREATION Health concepts. Entries can be created in any 2-D or digital medium.


Contestants should drop off their artwork with attached entry forms in the CTMC Main Lobby (1301 Wonder World Dr. in San Marcos) by the September 22 deadline. A Kids Art Calendar Contest drop box is clearly marked. A CREATION Health Institute Representative can arrange to pick up large-quantity entries for childcare facilities, camp coordinators, church groups, schools and community organizations. Please call the CTMC CREATION Health Institute at 512.753.3818 to make those arrangements.
