Students illustrate their ideas of how soccer promotes diversity with the calendar featuring holidays celebrated throughout the world. Thirteen pieces of artwork are selected, one for the cover of the calendar and one for each month of the year.
Along with the publishing of their artwork, five students are chosen to receive scholarships in the amount $500 each for their outstanding talent and their vision of soccer “Bringing the World Together.” The art teachers for each of the 13 pieces of art work selected receive $200 to assit with purchase of art supplies.
5,000 copies of the calendar are printed each year and distributed to the schools in each of the four school districts. Copies of the calendar are also mailed to friends of Dallas Cup and sponsors.
