Dated: Jan 10, 2010
Dear Member,

The application date for participating in Saraswati Puja cultural
events is Jan 10. So the last date really is *today*. Please look at
the participation rules given on the following page:

http://prabasi.org/Activities/Saraswati2010/Programs.html 
and send in your application immediately. All instructions are given
on the web-page given above. They were also sent via email earlier
this month and in December as well.

Here is additional information regarding the Art Competition:

Art competition during Saraswati Puja 2010 (12:00 - 1:00 pm)
============================================================

PARENTS! We really need the OLDER KIDS TO ENROLL FOR THE COMPETITION!
We have kids in the 3 and under and 5-9 category only.  Please
encourage the older ones to bring in their art work. Tell them, every
contestant will be given an entry prize.

1) All art work for all ages must be done at home -- only judging will
be done on site.
2) Bring in the art work earlier than 12:00 noon to the registration
desk as judging and announcing of the winners will be between 12:00 pm
and 1:00 pm. It is preferred but the child does not have to present to
accept the prize.
3) Paper size -- from 8.5X11 to 3X5 only and they can use anything
from crayons, to color pencils to charcoal, watercolor or oil
painting.   Points will be given on creativity/details, quality of art
and how well they understood the theme.
4) Please let your child do the art work themselves.

The themes are given on our web-site at the link provided above.
Besides the Art Competition, we also have "Go-As-You-Like" for kids of
different ages (3.00 PM - 4.00 PM) and "Bay Area Premier League" - A
competition of Performing Arts (5.30 PM onwards) - details for which
may also be found on the same page above.

Remember, Saraswati Puja is on Jan 23 at Sunnyvale Hindu Temple. We
hope to have good participation and we'll see you there at 10:30 in
the morning.
