Human Rights Student Leadership Council

Celebrating Diversity Art Competition 2019




The Human Rights Student Leadership Council is pleased to announce its Celebrating Diversity High School Art Competition. Our world and the Prince William County community is diverse. Celebrating diversity encourages us to recognize and appreciate our differences.  The differences can be based on race, gender, national origin, disabilities, age, sex and religions.



Create a poster based on the theme Celebrating Diversity.



The goals of the Picture Human Rights Poster Contest are:

  1. to stimulate young people to learn about, reflect on, and express what Celebrating Diversity in particular means to them;
  2. to encourage young people to educate their communities about diversity, and
  3. to heighten awareness about the diversity in Prince William County.



The contest is open to High School students in Prince William County Public Schools, Private Schools or Homeschools. Only individual entries accepted.



Winners will be announced during the Human Rights Student Leadership Council Graduation Ceremony on Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at Dr. A.J. Ferlazzo Building 15941 Donald Curtis Drive, Woodbridge, Virginia 22191.  First place winner will receive an iPad. Second place winner will receive a $100 gift card.
