The 15th annual Contra Costa Middle and High School Art and Writing Challenge has been announced through Mount Diablo’s Peace Center. The Topic:
The Occupy Movement is raising concerns about social inequality in our country. From your perspective, are there improvements you would make and inequalities you would end within your school, community, and/or nation that would help you, your family, or others? Describe.
Interested students whose teachers are not participating may call the office at 925-935-7850 to receive an application. Cash awards will be offered!
Students may address this issue through art, essay, or creative writing. Selections will be announced in April, and awardees, their teachers, and families will be feted in May with a celebratory dinner, during which students will present their work.
Many thanks to the George Miller Youth Fund and Ludell Deutscher for their generous donation to this project. Anyone else who wishes to donate should please contact the office.
