YAAS will allow talented youth from Maryland Institute College of Art to display their artistic skills while participating in citizen diplomacy. This year’s theme is “Peace through People.” Sister Cities International is challenging youth to create work that demonstrates the power people have to produce peace. The four categories are photography, film art, and writing. Your students are all encouraged to participate for a chance to win the grand prize of $1000 in cash. All students, up to age 22, may participate in the challenge.
In 1956, President Eisenhower envisioned a world where global citizens could work with each other to create peace, mutual understanding and prosperity. The Young Artists and Authors Showcase (YAAS) is a youth challenge created to capture Eisenhower’s vision in a creative art form.
Submissions must arrive by May 1, 2016. A flyer is attached to this email. Please feel free to contact Ted Carroll, Membership Manager for Youth Programs, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
