Welcome to the new What About Peace? e-newsletter! We hope you like the new look and are ready to spread the word about this great contest where young people aged 14-20 can showcase their talents and answer the question: What About Peace?
Painting, short story, photography, graphic, poetry and essay categories are judged by a panel of artists and activists based on form and content. Because of the careful “refereed” judging process, having an entry published on the What About Peace? web site is equivalent to journal publication.
Help us get the word out to teachers and youth workers ready to sponsor another winner. Download the What About Peace? flyer to share with friends and family. Entry forms and information are on our website, www.whataboutpeace.org.
Prizes will be given in two categories: written (essay, poem, short story) and visual (painting, collage, photography and graphic).
GRAND PRIZE is $1000 in any category
First Place $300 each for the best written entry and $300 for best visual entry
Second Place $150 in each category
Sponsor/Teacher’s prizes $100 for Grand prize and first prize
We're excited that another contest is underway!
So, how do you answer the question: What About Peace?
Reminder: entries must be in our office by February 15.
