National Child Day Children’s Artwork Display at Kelowna City Hall
November 20th is National Child Day. To celebrate this special day in our community we are asking all CCRR members who currently provide a child care program for children 12 years and under, to have their children create a piece of art to display at city hall.  We will be displaying the children’s art work at the Kelowna City Hall.

Art work submitted must meet the following parameters:
• Size: 8.5 inches by 11 inches (on construction or white paper )
• Child’s first name and age must be included on the art work

If you would like to pickup art work afterwards, please put your child care program name on the back of each paper.

Art work submissions must be delivered to the Kelowna Child Care Society #4—1890 Ambrosi Road office no later than November 10th, 2016. Please do not take any art to City Hall.

The art work will be displayed at City Hall from November 15th to the 21st, 2016

What is National Child Day? 

This day marks the adoption by the United Nations of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

In 1993, the Government of Canada enacted Bill C-371, otherwise known as the Child Day Act, and designated November 20th of each year as a national day of the child in order to promote awareness in Canada of the Convention.

The Convention spells out the basic human rights to which children
(under the age of 18) everywhere are entitled.
