I hope that you are doing well. I wanted to let you know about a great opportunity for the young people you work with. The NYCLU is sponsoring the Freedom of Expression Contest. This year’s theme: What do you stand for?

Youth are asked to choose an issue – racial justice, freedom of speech, immigrants’ rights, LGBTQ rights or something else – then make some noise! Write an essay, poem or short story. Create artwork. Perform spoken word. Make a video. Sing. Rhyme. Be heard!  To enter, for complete info and to see past winners, click here.<http://www.nyclu.org/contest>

Thousands of Dollars in Prizes! No topic is off limits. All mediums are accepted.

Deadline to submit is Monday, May 16. Educators get prizes for submitting the most student entries! Feel free to forward this message to friends and colleagues.
