Mt. Diablo Peace & Justice Center's 21st Annual ART & WRITING CHALLENGE & YOUTH ACTIVIST GRANT. Open to Middle and High School Students in Contra Costa County

Topic/Prompt for Art & Writing Challenge 2019:
"Cultivating a Peaceful World: Visions for the Future"

Across the globe, marginalized communities continue to face direct threats to their humanity and livelihood. We fear not only for the lives of those across the globe, but for ourselves, our families, and our loved ones. At times, this fear can be overwhelming. However, we must not let it defeat us. We are more powerful together than anyone can imagine.
We must look inside ourselves and to our community to envision the future we want.

In the year of our 50th Anniversary, the Peace Center seeks visions of the future from young people in the community and asks:

When you dream of liberation, what does that look like to you?
What are your hopes for a more peaceful future?
How do you see communities thriving? How do we get there?

We are looking for writing and visual artwork that speaks to these questions.

Students may submit entries in three different categories:
Visual Art, Creative Writing or Essay

Cash prizes range from $25-$500!!!

In this, our 50th year, we also are proud to announce our inaugural YOUTH ACTIVISM GRANT Awards!

We are welcoming nominations for students who have exhibited an outstanding commitment to engaging in the struggle for human rights, justice, peace and/or youth empowerment.
You may nominate a youth organization, an individual, or a group of students, grades 6-12 from Contra Costa County. Three $100 grants will be awarded.

Art & Writing Submissions and Activism Grant Nominations are due Friday, April 12, 2019.
