The contest is open to all children and young adults under the age of 18 who reside within the South Bend city limits.

Contest Details:

The patch design features the department's beloved "Beacon of Hope" within a shield, symbolizing the guiding light and protection provided by our officers.

Completed coloring pages can be submitted electronically via the provided online form or dropped off at the South Bend Police Department headquarters at 701 West Washington Street, South Bend, Indiana. The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2024.

Judging Criteria:

The entries will be judged by a panel of experienced art educators and law enforcement professionals based on the following criteria:

  • Creativity and originality
  • Use of color and composition
  • Overall presentation

Awards and Recognition:

The top three winners will receive a special prize package that includes a commemorative plaque, a framed version of their winning artwork, and a gift certificate to a local art supply store. All participating artists will receive a certificate of appreciation for their efforts.
