A Holiday Art Project for AFGE Kiddos

Categories: The Insider

Kids have an uncanny way of telling it like it is. Whether it's about the quality of your cooking or pointing out the obvious, children cut through the cobwebs of adulthood to get straight to the heart of the matter. So what do they think about public service? Our special art project asks AFGE kids to describe, through their own original artwork, what their parents, grandparents, brothers, and sisters do and show just how powerful public service is to our country. 

The holiday seasons is the perfect time to kick things off. As you rush to make sure the meal is perfect, and the family is gathered — the smallest members of your celebration will be looking for something to do.  

So break out the crayons, colored pencils, markers, and print out this template. Once they're done (and before you stick it on the fridge), please send AFGE a copy. Your child's artwork may be displayed across AFGE's publications.  

So, here's your artwork toolkit: 

  • Print out this template and fill out the information on the back. 
  • Challenge your kiddos to draw what they think you do at work. 
  • If you'd like, snap a photo of your artist holding their work of art and send it to comments@afge.org, along with a scanned copy of the paper.  
  • Or, send the art by snail mail to Communications Department, 80 F Street NW, Washington, DC 20001 

We know we're proud to represent the people who stand for good government and make America work. We can only imagine how heroic the smallest members of your family see you. We hope you'll participate in this uplifting project.

We have never had our union contracts unilaterally annulled, our union volunteers kicked out of offices, our work fighting injustice severely restricted or denied. That’s why this national convention is extremely important. The stakes have never been higher – and that's why our 41st Triennial National Convention is so important.
