Young Artist Program

Are you a young artist under the age of 21? If so, we would love to showcase your artwork on our website, social media, newsletters, reports and other resource materials about children's rights. We are interested in drawings, paintings, pictures and even your poetry. If you are a youth over the age of 16, you may provide your own consent. If you are under 16, then we need your parent or guardian to give their consent.
