Mother's Day Card Art Contest

Dear home schooling families,

Birthright invites you to participate in an art contest to design the Mother's Day Card we offer to our donors and friends.  The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 14th.  

The prize is $50 to the student whose work is chosen and a $25 gratuity to the parent or teacher eliciting the effort.

Birthright invites you to participate in our
2nd Annual Mother’s Day Card Art Contest
We are holding a Mother’s Day art contest to promote the dignity of motherhood and the blessing of children.
We are looking for a painting or drawing of a mother and baby that we can offer as a card for our donors to use in honoring their own mother and for us to use in promoting the work of Birthright.
  1. There should be no words used in the artwork.
  2. The artist’s full name, teacher’s name and name of school should be clearly printed on the back of the submitted artwork.
  3. The artwork can be done in any digitally scannable medium, i.e.: acrylic paint, watercolor paint, colored pencil, markers, crayon, etc. Students should color thoroughly so no pencil sketch marks show.
  4. The submitted artwork should measure 9x12” and may be done on drawing paper, Bristol Board or canvas board.
  5. Entries must be received by March 14th to be eligible. They may be mailed or delivered to:
66 Clinton St.
Plattsburgh, NY 12901.
Office hours are Monday through Friday: 10am-2pm.
  1. The artwork chosen will become the property of Birthright to be displayed in our office and used for printing cards. Artwork not used will be available to be reclaimed at the Birthright office.
  2. The artist whose work is chosen will be recognized in our April newsletter. They will also be given a prize of $50. The winner’s teacher will be given a gratuity of $25 for encouraging their students to participate in the contest.
Picture books and art masterpieces can be used as studies in composition. Ideally, we hope to see a picture that shows joy and bonding between mother and baby.
Birthright, the world’s first crisis pregnancy center, was founded in 1971 by Louise Summerhill in Toronto. It is now an international organization with hundreds of centers where women can find respect, emotional support and practical assistance. Birthright services are free, confidential and available to any woman regardless of age, race, religion, marital status or financial situation.
We offer:
  • free pregnancy testing
  • maternity and baby clothes
  • referrals to other agencies as needed for medical and legal help, housing, etc.
  • information on pregnancy and childbirth, parenting skills, adoption, etc.
  • baby food and formula as available

Birthright of Plattsburgh is a chartered chapter of Birthright International. It is staffed entirely by volunteers and funded by private donations and charitable grants. We receive no government funds, nor are we affiliated with any denomination, government agency or political group.
Birthright is not just another voice telling a woman what she should or shouldn’t do. Our volunteers are here to listen to each woman’s assessment of her situation and help her to identify resources among her family and friends, in the community and in herself.
Our office at 66 Clinton Street is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30am-4:00pm and by appointment. Birthright also maintains a 24/7 hotline at 1-800-550-4900. If you would like to receive our newsletter, e-mail us at
