Teen Artists for Social Justice

Teen Artists for Social Justice Poster Contest


We are inviting all Chatham youth in Grades 6 to 12 to design a poster that we can put up in the library and other local venues that choose to promote inclusion and acceptance.

What We’re Looking For:

  • An eye-catching poster design to promote social justice and inclusion that adheres to the contest rules below.
  • A positive message that lets viewers know that the place they are entering (library or business) is a safe space for those coping with the consequences of social injustice.
  • Original content and creativity.  From abstract art to realistic sketches, digital art to photography, you are free to interpret the theme as you wish.

What You’ll Win:

  • Notoriety – The top three designs will be printed on the library’s large format printer and displayed in the library and around town.
  • The top three designs will also be printed on t-shirts for the winners.
  • First place winner will receive a Speedball Advanced All-in-One Fabric Screen Printing Kit 

We will be contacting everyone shortly regarding the prizes.
Since we have 4 entries, all will be printed at 11×17 size
