Love in Action
LaGrange District United Methodist Children’s Project
Calling all LaGrange District United Methodist Children. Inspired by the song lyrics “If I could help somebody………” the LaGrange District is asking you to create a picture illustrating how you will help your community through one act of kindness.
You can use clip art, electronic visual graphics, magazine clippings, newspaper clippings, crayons, markers, color pencils, color pen, and paint.
You put your vision board on an 8.5” × 11” white paper. The page layout (or the paper orientation) can be either landscape or portrait.  After you have created your picture, you can either create a 1 to 2-minute video explanation of your illustration or you can write one paragraph explanation.  In your explanation, ask the following question:
     “If you could help somebody…..”, what would you do to help?

Last but not least include a cover page with the following information:
1. First and Last Name
2. Home Church Name
3. Home Church Address
The Picture will be judged on the following categories:
1. Paper Size Requirement (8.5” × 11”)
2. Cover page
3. Competition Theme (“If I could help somebody……….”)
4. Appearance, Effort, Creativity, Originality
5. Video explanation of your Picture
6. One paragraph explanation of your Picture

Deadline to submit is Thursday, April 30th.  Please email all entries to Dr. Julaunica Tigner at
