Children’s Rights Art Competition

Children’s Rights Art Competition

Are you a 5th or 6th grade student (cycle 2) attending elementary school? Then you can take part in an exciting Children's Rights Art Competition!

Imagine you have a special set of rules that make sure you're treated fairly and kindly. These rules are called "children's rights". Most countries in the world have agreed to these rights, so that you can grow up safe, happy and healthy. There are 54 articles that describe all of the children’s rights. Here are some of them:

- Right to be Safe (Article 6): Every child has the right to be loved, cared for, and protected.

- Right to be Healthy (Article 24): You have the right to good food, clean water, and a doctor who can help you stay strong and fit.

- Right to Learn (Article 28): You have the right to go to school and learn new things.

- Right to Play (Article 31): Playtime is super important. You have the right to play, have fun, and do things that make you happy.

- Right to Speak Up (Article 12): Your voice matters! You have the right to share your thoughts, ideas, and feelings.

Now, back to the art competition! The Department of Youth on Sint Maarten wants to educate everyone about children’s rights. They do a lot of activities to help make this happen. The art competition is so that YOU can express yourself, and that your artwork can help educate others on your rights as children.

Rules to enter:

- Draw, paint, decorate, and visualize your favourite children's right.

- The artwork should be in a square format (like Instagram).

- A short explanation about your artwork is appreciated (what children's right did you draw and why).

- Submit your artwork digitally to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or drop it off at The Government Building.

- Don't forget to add your name, number & email address to your artwork so we can contact you.

- The deadline is April 5, 2024.
