Winners announced for ‘Teens and Stewardship’ art contest

CHARLESTON — Catholic teenagers were invited to interpret the theme of time, talent and treasure in a national stewardship logo contest sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee on Stewardship recently.

The contest, which was open to teens ages 13 to 19, was announced in September 2006 by Bishop Robert J. Baker, chairman of the ad hoc committee.

The logos, entered in English or Spanish language categories, were to convey the true meaning of teens being good and prayerful stewards for Christ. They were judged on overall impact, effectiveness in conveying the theme, originality and artistic merit.

Bishop Baker and a local committee made first round judging of more than 250 entries, selecting 20 for final judging at the USCCB Department of Publishing. Members of the youth office, African American affairs and Hispanic affairs reviewed the selections and awarded prizes.

Six monetary prizes, three for each language, were awarded to a Catholic organization of the winner’s choice. First place received $500, second place $250 and third $100. All six prizes went to youths from Myrtle Beach. First, second and third place English language entries, and first and second place Spanish language entries went to a group of students: Elizabeth Altomani, 14; Gabriella DeCenzo, 15; Teresa Eaddy, 14; Brett Ives, 15; Corrie Mayhew, 14; and Alexandria Ulyicsni, 14. Third place for Spanish language went to Teresa Eaddy.
