  • Announcing the 2019 Youth Poster Contest

    The 2019 Youth Poster Contest is now open for all Marin youth, ages 12 through 18. Running through May 3, the poster contest provides an unprecedented and very public platform to let the voice of our youth be heard! Marin youth, ages 12-18,  are invited to design an art poster that communicates their hopes and concerns about social justice, women’s rights, immigration, climate change, firearms regulation, and other issues important to them. Using art, creative ideas and problem-solving skills, youth will develop a poster that informs, challenges and inspires the community to take action and make a difference, especially in these troubling times. Over $2,200 in prizes will be awarded prizes to the winners and for their school or organization, in two age categories, 12-14 and 15-18. Following the contest, the finalist and winning posters will be taken on a Bay Area exhibition tour, including a special presentation at the 2019 Marin County Fair.
