Contest Extension

VISA is extending the deadline of the U.S. program of its global children’s art competition, “VISA Olympics of the Imagination”. The extension, by a week, to June 15 will bring U.S. children in-line with the same guidelines as other participating countries. The “VISA Olympics of the Imagination” challenges children, ages 9-13, to use their imaginations to create an original piece of art that represents what the Olympic motto of “Citius, Altius, Fortius” (Faster, Higher, Stronger) means to them. All children, ages 9-13, can enter the program individually and are not required to be a part of any school program to compete. The winners of the program and a parent or guardian will attend the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games as the guests of VISA in Sydney, Australia, from September 14-19, 2000. While at the XXVII Olympiad, they will attend a number of Olympic events and activities, and will participate in special Australian-themed activities. Contest entry information is available through www.visa.com/visakids. VISA also announced last week the opening of the “Olympians Reunion Centre” in Sydney. Designed as a hospitality facility for Olympic alumni athletes, the Olympians Reunion Centre will be located in Sydney’s historic Customs House at Circular Quay adjacent to one of Sydney’s Olympic “Live Sites”. The Centre will be open from 1000 a.m. until midnight each day during the Olympic Games.
