Building A Child's Esteem. No Permit Required.

Construction may be a little slow but building up our most vital resource—our kids—is as critical as ever. To that end, according to a recent Las Vegas Review-Journal article, the Nevada Housing Division recently sponsored and judged 158 pieces in their 13th Annual Where I Live Contest. There were several other sponsors.

To enter, students in the Clark County School District, from kindergarten to fifth grade, were asked to submit artwork depicting their homes. The winners will be displayed in a January 14th exhibit at The Venetian. The exhibit is free and open to the public. It will begin at 4:00 pm and remain on display until 8:00 pm that evening. The cocktail reception begins at 6:30 pm and the awards presentation will begin at 7:00 pm.

Calendars showcasing the children's artwork are also free and can be obtained by calling 702.486.7220 or by emailing

While we're on the subject of calendars, mark yours and plan on coming out to support art among our youth on the 14th.
