East River Legal Services (ERLS) “We Believe” Art Contest Guidelines
WHY PARTICIPATE IN THE ART CONTEST?
East River Legal Services is holding this poster art contest for all participants with the theme “We Believe.” The intention is to provide an opportunity for members of the community, including children and teens, to help raise awareness about domestic violence, and to encourage victims to look forward to a future free of domestic violence.
One poster will be selected for a $100 cash prize, and another poster will be selected for a $50 prize. Other prizes may also be available. Any of the posters submitted may be used in advertising for East River Legal Services, be displayed in events that ERLS participates in such as the Domestic Violence Summit and Take Back the Night.
The staff and attorneys at East River Legal Services will judge entries based on creativity, message, color, and complexity.
