The Family and Youth Services Bureau is offering grantees of its Runaway and Homeless Youth programs the chance to win the materials to paint a wall mural in their facilities -- and to have their young people's creativity be nationally recognized!
To apply, please submit a rough sketch and a one- to two-page write-up detailing the meaning of your mural and the youth-driven creative process. A panel of FYSB staff and youth will judge the drawings based on the meaningfulness of the design and the extent to which Positive Youth Development was used in the process. The winning agency will be given a gift card to cover the purchase of art supplies. Canvas can be used if the winning facility prefers that paint not be applied directly on the walls.
Materials are due to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. on January 31, 2011. Please contact the National Clearinghouse on Families & Youth at (301) 608-8098 if you have questions about the contest. Good luck!
