What about Peace deadline: Febraury 17
Supporter –

Happy New Year!

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
     I will not procrastinate.
     I will work for peace and justice.
     I will make time for my creativity to bloom.

It is 2014 and the deadline for the What about Peace? contest is fast approaching. It’s the time of year I always get nervous – 'Will anyone actually submit a painting, graphic or photograph?' – 'Are there still poets and writers willing to share their ideas about peace?'

Fortunately the first entries have arrived. A shout-out to Lane Erickson of Torrance, California who sent the first entry – a poem called simply “Peace.”

Are you finishing up your painting, choosing between photographs or assembling a collage? Does your poem, short story or essay say everything you want it to convey about peace? 
On February 17th we hope that your ideas for peace will be in our office and ready for the jurying process.
If you are between 14 and 20 years old we want to hear from you. If you are a teacher, counselor or youth worker, encourage your students to apply.
The Grand prize is $1000!

Check out www.whataboutpeace.org for all the entry details.

  • Send your entry and the form to What About Peace? at 2017 Mission Street, 2nd floor, San Francisco, CA 94110.
  • All entries must be received in our office on or before February 17th.
In peace,

Kirsten Moller
