TO celebrate the Laois Bealtaine Festival 2012, the Arts section of Laois County Council are inviting children and young people to get creative and design a poster.

As 2012 is European year of “Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations”, the arts office are welcoming opportunities to bring young and old participants and organisers together this year to help explore the festival theme ‘What kind of old do you want to be’?

Posters will be exhibited at the Arthouse, Stradbally during the month of May as part of the Bealtaine Festival.

The competition requires one poster per child at a maximum size of A4. The age ranges are four to eight years old, nine to 12 years old, and 13 plus. A first prize will be awarded for each category.

All posters should be clearly marked with a label on the back with details including the name of child and name of childs parent or guardian, a contact number of the parent or guardian, the age of the child, the school and the class name. Posters should be delivered to the Arts Office in Laois County Council by Friday April 27.
