USCIS Extends Closing Date for National Children's Art Project
WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that it will extend the closing date for the USCIS National Children’s Art Project until Aug. 30, 2010, extending the submission deadline by two weeks.
On June 14, 2010, USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas announced the “We Are America” National Children’s Art Project in collaboration with public libraries and other community-based organizations serving America’s immigrant communities.
USCIS continues to encourage children across the United States to create artwork in response to an important prompt: "People have come from all over the world to become Americans. Why does that make us great?" USCIS will display the children’s artwork in USCIS offices around the country.
