Youth Poster Contest 2022

Call for entry: Youth Poster Contest Returns for 2022!

We are thrilled to announce that the Youth Poster Contest will return for the 2022 school year following the cancellation of the 2020 contest due to COVID 19. It has been a most challenging time for school administrators, teachers, students, and their families, with the closure of all schools in Marin County.

Beginning on January 3, 2022, Marin middle and high school students will again have an unprecedented public platform to stand up and speak out about social justice, health, discrimination, climate change, women’s rights, immigration, firearms regulations, and other issues important to them.

Our purpose is to stimulate creative ideas, problem-solving skills, collaboration, and use art to inform, challenge, and inspire the greater community to take action and make a difference.

Posters can be submitted at RileyStreet Art Supply in San Rafael through the contest deadline of May 6.

The Youth Poster Contest is developed in partnership and enthusiastically supported by the Marin County Office of Education. $3,800 in prizes will be awarded to the contest winners.

See contest rules for details.

Our 2019 contest was the most successful ever, with over 300 posters submitted. Due to pent-up interest in this contest, expectations are high for an even greater turnout for our new contest.

The Youth Poster Contest also focuses on reaching underserved Marin youth who might not otherwise participate in such a contest due to a lack of art teachers, art supplies, or parental support at home.

We engage students through free poster workshops in several Title I schools, and an exciting new partnership with the San Rafael-based nonprofit, Next Generation Scholars, which provides educational programming to at-risk Marin students.
