2017 Student Art Competition
Theme: Human Trafficking
Welcome to the homepage for the Elizabeth Fry Society Student Art Competition. High school and post secondary school students are offered an opportunity to compete in this art competition in exchange for prizes and the chance for their artwork to be displayed in the upcoming human trafficking information booklet.
Human trafficking is a clandestine crime that effects a person’s fundamental right to freedom and to movement, and is akin to slavery. Many ask, does human trafficking take place in northern British Columbia? The answer is YES. Adults and youth have been forced into slave like conditions in both labour trafficking and sexual exploitation throughout communities all over northern BC.
Not only will this competition allow Prince George artists to display their immense talent, this contest creates an opportunity for our community to engage in conversation about human trafficking.
If you’re a student attending a high school or post secondary school within the boundaries of Prince George, BC, then you are eligible for this contest. Home-schooled youth are also eligible as long as they are high school-aged and their primary residence is within the boundaries of Prince George.
Make sure you read all the guidelines and include an entry form with your submission. All entry forms must be attached to the back side of the submitted art.
