Make Your Mas(k)!


Attention, kids! It’s Carnival time in Trinidad and Tobago and in other parts of the world! In T&T, we also used to call it “masquerade” and today we call it ‘mas’ for short. Take one of your COVID masks and redesign it into a unique Carnival mask using recycled objects. Make a mask to “make your mas”! Anything from paint to used sequins to dried leaves can be used – be as creative as you’d like! But please check with your parents to make sure that what you’re using is safe.

First prize in each category

Two free digital music lessons OR two digital dance lessons (your choice). Lessons will be based on a traditional Carnival art form of Trinidad and Tobago.

Plus: Other special prizes!
