How will you celebrate the Year of the Ox? With a bang?
Possible Places to Start
- Whatever celebration you take part in on the 12th, depict it.
- Try your hand at the esteemed art of Chinese Calligraphy .
- Sketch the moon. Or, sketch a normal street scene tinged with the color red.
- Write a short story about a New Year's gift that goes totally, horribly wrong.
Don't forget to include your name, grade and school, and an (optional) headshot with your piece. Also, titles! Send your submission to YouthReview@EmeraldParents.org by Monday, February 15th.
We realize some of you may have submitted related pieces to the July series on Family Tradition. If you have already had a piece published, we urge you to delve deep into other aspects of this historically rooted and culturally rich holiday.
