By now all you teachers and students are well into the well-trodden path of the particulars of school, homework and extra-curriculars. Wouldn't you like to have a bit of time to step back and think about the big questions and to put your creativity to the task of answering: What About Peace?
You can. Help us spread the word about this great contest where young people ages 14-20 can showcase their talents to build a more peaceful world. The contest launches this month!
And the deadline is sooner than you think: February 17th, 2014.
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? gallery site is equivalent to journal publication.

Entry forms and information are on our website, www.globalexchange.org/whataboutpeace.
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 prizes
We're excited that another contest is underway!
Deadline: entries must be in our office by February 17.
