5th Annual Teen Art Contest: “Expressing Boundaries”

Tuesday, January 1, 2019Thursday, January 24, 2019

In an effort to demonstrate what expressing boundaries looks like to students throughout Orange County, artists are invited to create images that represent relational boundaries, and the ways in which expressing these boundaries help to foster healthy relationships. This is an opportunity for students to raise awareness around the acknowledgement and respect of boundaries in relationships.

Safe Homes is asking artists of all kinds from grades 6-12 to share their personal vision and voice in promoting healthy relationships and creating change in our culture. 1 out of every 3 teens is impacted by dating violence before the age of 18, regardless of race, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, or any other social identity. Types of dating violence include emotional/mental, verbal, financial, physical, and sexual abuse.

Participants must review the guidelines and submit all artwork with a completed entry form (see link below).

Selected submissions will be shown at an art show for Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month where the winners will also be announced.
