“Justice Through Our Eyes” Art Program
A feature of the Fourth National Restorative Justice Conference
A new component of the national restorative conference in 2013 is the “Justice Through Our Eyes” art program. Designed to capture the essence and soul of justice in its truest form through the eyes of our youth, the program is calling for students – either in “K to 8th grade,” or “High School through Higher Education” categories to create a work of art that answers the question: “What does justice mean to me?”
Entries will be accepted now through March 15. Students may create the artwork using the medium of their choice and can upload jpegs or gifs of the artwork at www.lourdes.edu/restorativejustice. There is no fee to enter and students may enter as many times as they wish. The program is open to students worldwide.
All artists’ submissions will be included in the 2013 Fourth National Restorative Justice Conference program booklet. One winning entry from each category – “K to 8th grade” and “High School through Higher Education” – will be chosen by a select panel of art and social justice professionals.
The two winning student artists will each receive:
- A $500 Visa gift card that can be used for art supplies for the student and/or his/her classmates
- Acknowledgement during the conference’s opening session
- Winning artwork will be posted at www.restorativejusticenow.org
- Winning artwork will appear on billboards in and around the Toledo, Ohio area courtesy of media sponsor Lamar Advertising Company (link to their website: www.lamar.com
Winners will be notified by March 31, 2013. There is no cost to enter and no limit on number of entries submitted. If you prefer to submit your entry in person or via mail, please contact Helene Sheets at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. Submissions will be accepted until midnight on March 22, 2013.
