What an Amazing Contest!
To all partners, supporters, students, teachers, family and friends - Thank you for a truly sensational 2018 Youth Poster Contest. Marin youth submitted 240 of the most amazing posters on social justice, women's rights, firearms regulation, immigration, climate change, gender and sexual equality and other issues important to Marin youth. Due to the exceptionally high quality of the posters, our team of judges had an extremely challenging time selecting the finalists, winners and Producer's Award winner.
Please visit the 2018 Poster Gallery to see these incredible winners.
The Youth Poster Contest has received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition from the United States Congress, a Certificate of Recognition from both the California State Assembly and Senate, and a Resolution from the Marin County Board of Supervisors - all in only our second year!
We are already making plans for the 2019 Youth Poster Contest, with the specific goal of engaging more students, especially students from underserved communities. So start imagining what you will do to:
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, firearms regulation, and other issues important to you. Now is the time to stand up and speak out to our community.
