Spirit Catholic Radio School Folder Art Contest

Each year we provide approximately 25,000 colorful, two-pocket homework folders to Catholic elementary students, compliments of generous business underwriters—they’re our gift to you.  Students in our listening areas of Omaha, Council Bluffs, Lincoln, Northeast Nebraska, Central Nebraska and Western Nebraska are invited to use and enjoy the folders in whichever way best serves their needs.

The folders are printed with the artwork from the winners and runners-up from our annual Catholic Schools art contest. Each year, the winners’ artwork is printed on the covers and featured on our web site. Both students and teachers have their names announced on Spirit Catholic Radio in the spring and also win a variety of prizes.

The theme for our 2014 School Folder Art Contest was Encounter Jesus! It's the theme we've chosen to use for the radio network's 15th anniversary, which is this year. 

A big thank you to all the schools and students participating in the 2014 contest. There were tons of fantastic entries from talented students across the listening area. 

The artwork below will be featured on the 2014-15 school folder that will be distributed to all Catholic elementary students in the listening area in August 2014.
