What About Peace? Banner
Dear Supporter,

Whew. We are in the final stages of going through the 154 poems, 77 essays, 30 short stories, 77 paintings, 66 graphics, and 31 photos we received this year for the What About Peace? contest.

It is going to be hard to select the winners, but the jury is hard at work doing just that.

Our jury consists of a book store owner, an author, a published essayist and a blogger, an artist from Cuba, an activist, a portrait painter, a landscape photographer, and muralist all dedicated to giving their full attention to all the work presented to the What About Peace? contest by young people from around the world.

Every written piece is read by four people; evaluating them for craft and content. All of the visual pieces have been hung in the conference room of the Global Exchange office for the jury to see and ask themselves the questions: What are the most compelling messages of peace? What are the most original?

For now, as the room is used for meetings of all sorts, everyone gets to view and enjoy the incredible talent of the 14 -20 year old students who know how they feel about peace.

The winners will be announced on the What About Peace? Facebook page on Monday, April 22th, so “like” our page  to see all of the fabulous winners!

Thanks for sharing your vision of peace with us,

Kirsten Moller
