Create a superhero to wipe out COVID-19
December 13, 2021

We are all tired of COVID-19. Here’s your chance to create a superhero who could wipe it out.

Enter the Healthy Trailblazer Journal’s superhero contest. Draw an original picture of your superhero and write a short explanation of your character’s superpower.

The deadline for submitting entries is Friday, Dec. 17. Please give them to Mr. Leonard, who teaches religion and social studies to the seventh and eighth grades. The newspaper staffwill judge the entries. Here are the rules for the contest:

1. Illustrations should be neatly presented on blank paper—not lined.
2. Illustrations can be in color or black and white.
3. Illustrations need to be the artist’s original drawing—not a copy of someone else’s.
4. A short description of the superpower should be included. Spelling must be accurate!

The illustrations attached here are examples from 8th graders on the Healthy Trailblazer Journal staff.

Protection Woman enforces social distancing rules and gives everyone a mask. She speaks to everybody, no matter the language they speak. —           

Silver Chariot is a casual working citizen who wears a blue T-shirt and straw hat. He rides a horse, spreading the news of COVID. He weakens the disease by spreading awareness. —Nevin

COVID Mask Man goes around handing out masks to people who don’t have one. —Sahir

The school will give out a $25 prize for first place. Certificates for first, second, and third place will be awarded for each of DePaul’s three academies.

Good luck!
