Richmond youth needed for ERASE bullying-Respectful City poster campaign
03 October 2016
High school students in Richmond are once again invited to express themselves artistically by submitting a design to the Youth Artist Poster Contest that illustrates an ERASE bullying message of a respectful, safe and connected Richmond.
For the second year, this contest stems from the Respectful City Initiative presented by the City of Richmond and School District No. 38 that works to bring awareness about ERASE bullying in our community. Deadline for submissions is Monday, November 21, 2016.
“The City of Richmond Youth Service Plan aims to create an environment that generates opportunities for Richmond’s youth to have a safe and healthy journey into adulthood,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “We value the opinions and ideas of youth and this call for artwork gives them the opportunity to showcase their creativity and passion for this important message.”
This opportunity is open to all youth in grades eight to12 in Richmond. Poster submission criteria can be found at www.richmond.ca/youth under Youth Initiatives. A selection panel will review all submissions and select one poster design, which will promote ERASE bullying and a respectful city throughout the community, online and through social media starting in January 2017. In addition, the winner will receive a $100 gift certificate for programs or services offered at community recreation facilities.
