Diversity will be the focus of a few local art projects.
The Prince William Human Rights Student Leadership Council is accepting entries for the Celebrating Diversity Art Competition 2019.
Prince William County high school students may participate in the annual poster contest, which allows them to illustrate their views on celebrating diversity, according to a release from the county.
Individuals must submit a 16-by-20 poster board that contains a drawing or painting by 4:30 p.m. on March 15.
They may include writing in languages used by community members. A translation should be placed on the back of the piece.
Entries should be brought to the Prince William Human Rights Commission, which is located in the Ferlazzo Building in Woodbridge.
In addition to the poster, artists must provide their name, school, age, grade and phone number.
A title for the work and an explanation of how the work relates to the “Celebrating Diversity” theme are also required.
Officials will announce the winners of the contest at the Human Rights Student Leadership Council Graduation Ceremony, which is taking place at 6:30 p.m. on April 18 at the Ferlazzo Building.
The first-place prize is an iPad. The second-place and third-place winners will receive a $100 gift card and a $50 gift card, respectively.
