The Southern Ute Indian Tribe would like to invite you to participate in the 7th Annual Leonard C. Burch Art and Literacy Contest.
Leonard C. Burch was the Chairman of the Southern Ute Indian Tribal Council for more than 32 years. Under his leadership, the Southern Ute Tribe became a major economic force in La Plata County and in Indian Country.
The Southern Ute Tribal Council passed a resolution in 1996 to declare Dec. 10 of every year Leonard C. Burch Day. This year, we will honor Leonard C. Burch and his life by holding the 7th Annual Leonard C. Burch Art and Literacy Contest.
The contest is open to all Elementary and Middle School students. This year’s theme is: “Health and Wellness of the Utes” and all entries must pertain to this theme. The contest will end on Dec. 7, 2018. All entries must be submitted to Trennie Collins at The Southern Ute Drum office by Dec. 7 at 5 PM or can be mailed to PO Box 737, Ignacio, CO 81137.
Please see the flyer for complete information on contest guidelines.
