POSTED: 01/19/16 7:19 PM

GREAT BAY – The annual Regatta Art Competition, is a fun contest open to children between the ages of 4 and 18 years. Children will have to complete assignments which are divided per school group. Professional judges will judge the art after they have been handed in at the Sint Maarten Yacht Club or at both Van Dorp locations.

There will be a first, second and third place winner for each assignment per school group. These winners will be rewarded with great prizes sponsored by local businesses. Packages with the assignments were sent out digitally and will be handed out to all Dutch side schools by the end of this week. The packages can also be collected at both Van Dorp locations and at the Sint Maarten Yacht Club.

Each year organizers add new, fun assignments to the package, challenging the children’s creativity. This year some of the assignments are, designing a burgee, a trophy, volunteer t-shirts and building a boat.

“It is wonderful to see how creative these kids are and I would love to use their creativity for the regatta by using their designs for trophies, t-shirts and flyers.” concludes Fleur.

Deadline for assignments, the pieces of art must be handed in before Sunday January 31st at both Van Dorp locations and the Sint Maarten Yacht Club. Prize giving ceremony: Sunday February 7th – 3 PM sharp at the Sint Maarten Yacht Club.
