What does to call oneself "Pontifical" mean? What are the elements that distinguish it? These are the questions that the International Secretariat of the Pontifical Society of the Holy Childhood asks all children and adolescents who will have to provide their answer not in words but with a drawing, combining artistic ability with a good dose of imagination, creativity and experience of the Society. 

On the occasion of the centenary of the denomination of the Pontifical Society of the Holy Childhood, the International Secretariat announces a "Competition" which will end on May 19, 2023, on the 180th anniversary of the foundation of the Society itself. 

Children and adolescents are therefore invited to participate by answering the question "What does Missionary Childhood and Adolescence mean for me in terms of being a Society of the Pope?" with a drawing accompanied by a brief descriptive caption of one’s work and the meaning of Pontifical. 

Each National Direction will select the winning drawing at a national level and will send it, together with the description made by the author of the drawing, to the International Secretariat of the Holy Childhood by March 31, 2023. The drawing received will be collected in a publication.
