Art Contest and Scholarship
Attention high school juniors and seniors! As the WRC updates and refreshes its branding, it is looking for new artwork/design that symbolizes its purpose of honoring the complexities of women’s identities, facilitating choices and changes through programs, counseling, and training, and committing to the advancement of social justice and equality. The winning art or design will be used to visually enhance WRC publications (i.e. website, brochures, posters, etc.), and the winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship to the institution of their choice as well as personal recognition at the Governor’s Artists’ Reception, in addition to other prizes. Deadline for submissions is October 21, 2106. Please click on the “submit” button to learn more!”
