URI sponsors peace poster project for K-12 students
Contest held in conjunction with Honors Colloquium on nonviolence
KINGSTON, R.I. -- September 21, 2000 -- The University of Rhode Island
is asking students in grades K-12 to create a poster illustrating how to
make the world more peaceful. Cosponsored by The Providence Journal, the
project is being held in conjunction with URI's Fall Honors Colloquium,
"Nonviolence: Legacies of the Past, Bridges to the Future," a
series of public programs addressing the theme of peace and nonviolence.
The peace poster project is designed to encourage students to reflect
on their personal role in creating a peaceful, nonviolent society. Students
are asked to create a poster with a slogan responding to the question, "What
can I do to make my world more peaceful?" It is not necessary to
be a talented artist to enter. All it takes is a thoughtful idea and a
Deadline for submissions is October 27, 2000.
Winning entrants in each of four age categories will receive U.S. Savings
Bonds, and their posters will be placed on public display. All participants
will receive certificates of recognition.
For complete contest details and an entry form, contact Jan Sawyer or
Todd McLeish in the URI News Bureau at 874-2116 or at email@example.com
