Want to make your space brighter and showcase the creativity of your youth?  Looking for an engaging life skills activity with a real reward? 

Enter your young people in the Family and Youth Services Bureau's Runaway and Homeless Youth Mural Contest. Youth could win the materials to paint a mural in your program.

Applicants must be grantees of FYSB's Runaway and Homeless Youth programs.

Application Instructions:

Please submit

For guidance as you prepare your application, please see Listening Ear's winning 2011 entry, as well as those submitted by the four runners up.

 A panel of FYSB staff and youth will judge the drawings based on the meaningfulness and creativity of the design and the extent to which Positive Youth Development was used in the process. The winning agency will be given a Home Depot 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 ncfy@acf.hhs.gov by 5 p.m. on Monday, January 31, 2012. Please Live Chat or call us at (301) 608-8098 if you have questions.

Good luck!
