CREATE. SUBMIT. PUBLISH.
Are you looking to build your portfolio? Do you want a larger audience to see your talent and creativity? Can you move people with your art?
The contest is simple: create a poster to let your peers know about Aaron's Law. Make an impact and change lives. Be sure all of your work is original. Submit it by the deadline, May 10, to have a chance to win and be published.
Choose Your Media.
Digital content may be easily uploaded. If you hand-create a poster, please submit a digital photo of your creation but keep the original. Nondigital winning content will be carefully collected to make professional-grade digital images of the piece. If the pieces cannot be professionally digitized, the winners will forfeit their place.
UNDERSTAND THE ISSUE.
Aaron's Law allows bystanders to call for help when a person overdoses on substances, without being charged for minor related crimes themselves. This law can literally save lives, and it's important that young people know their rights. Also important is that the announcements do not encourage nor condone substance misuse.
