Now that school is out, looking for a fun project for your kids this summer? The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has commissioned an art project for children ages 5 through 12 across the country, which will depict interpretations of the theme, "We Are America." The project asks children to draw pictures that answer the question, "People have come from all over the world to become Americans. Why does that make us great?"
All adopted children have a very special story behind how they became a U.S. citizen. This project could be a great opportunity for them to reflect on both their heritage, and the future they have as part of a new family and new country.
Full details on this project here: USCIS National Children’s Art Project.
This project is open to all children, adopted or biological. If you decide to participate, send us your submissions at firstname.lastname@example.org in addition to the USCIS, and we will feature some of the artwork and short essays!
