Know a young artist who needs $500?

To kickoff NWLC’s 35th anniversary celebration, we’re excited to announce a national art contest for students 13-19 years old! The winner will receive an award of $500 and their work, along with other chosen works receiving honorable mention recognition, may be featured in NWLC materials and on its web site.

NWLC is looking for visual artwork, such as photography, painting, Flash animation, and other web-based media, that creatively depicts the contest’s theme of “expanding the possibilities for women and girls".

The deadline to enter the contest is June 30, 2007. Please encourage any creative 13-19 year olds you know to enter, and help us get the word out to any students, teachers, principals, school administrators, parents, community activists, and anyone else that may be interested!

We hope to receive some fantastic submissions as NWLC celebrates 35 years of expanding the possibilities for women and girls, and also to be able to recognize some fabulous young artists. You can find full contest details here, or contact Jillian Holzer at (202) 588-5180 or for more information.
