17th Annual Children's Law Section Art Contest
Art Contest Reception, Oct. 23 at the South Broadway Cultural Center
Save the Date & Donate Today!

Through the years, the Children’s Law Section Art Contest has demonstrated that communicating ideas and emotions through art and writing fosters thought and discussion among youth on how to change their lives for the better. This year’s theme is designed to encourage youth from around the state who have come in contact with the juvenile justice and/or the child welfare systems to think about how they want and will market themselves to the world.

Support the Children’s Law Section Art Contest by way of a donation that will enable contest
organizers to purchase supplies, display artwork, provide prizes to contestants and host a reception for the participants and their families. Art supplies and contest prize donations are also welcome. To make a tax deductible donation, visit . For more information contact Alison Pauk at .
