Art Contests

2023 St. Joseph Art Contest


The Co-Cathedral of Saint Joseph, The Tablet, and the Archbishop John Hughes Council of the Knights of Columbus, invites students to express their faith through art by participating in the 2023 St. Joseph Art Contest.

St. Joseph represents fatherhood, the protector of Jesus, and a role model for fathers today. With that in mind, create a drawing, art piece, or visual representation on paper or digitally (8.5×11 inch) with the theme “Fatherhood of St. Joseph.”
