Community Competitions

  Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth” (Genesis 1:26).

In Genesis chapter one God speaks of making man in His image. He commands man to be fruitful, to multiply, to fill the earth and to subdue it. As God’s people, we are called to exercise biblical dominion over the earth.

In order to foster attitudes and actions of dominion, CLASS encourages student participation in various competitions. In whatsoever we do, we are to do all to the glory of God. The presentation of God’s truth, in a variety of formats such as art or writing, is vital in all societies and no less in our society today. To glorify God through the presentation of various art forms and to promote the development of skills, CLASS presents these competition pages. It is our hope that others will be inspired to be involved in future competitions and glorify God with heart, mind, soul, and strength.
