The 2018 Youth Poster Contest is now open for all Marin youth, ages 12 through 18. Running through May 31, the poster contest provides an unprecedented and very public platform to let your voice be heard!
Defined as “significant cultural, political, or social change arising from the actions or influence of young people”, youthquake was chosen by Oxford dictionaries as the 2017 word of the year. In light of the recent tragedies, youthquake should also be the 2018 word of the year.
Youthquake sounds like it should – the rallying cry by our youth to shake up the stagnant ground upon which politicians and others who will not raise their voice, or their vote, against this madness. We must all join this youth movement for sanity and safety.
For the youth of Marin, now is the time to communicate your hopes, optimism and concerns about social justice, climate change, gun control and other issues important to you. Now is the time to stand up and speak out to our community.
Final Deadline May 31, 2018
