Children's Law Section Annual Art Contest
Eighth Annual Children’s Art and Writing Contest -
"How I Want the World to See Me"
Members of the legal community were cordially invited to a reception and art display for the Children’s Law Section Annual Art and Writing Contest from 5 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 27, at Scalo Northern Italian Grill in Albuquerque.
Children who are either currently detained or involved in such programs as the Youth Reporting Center, drug court and anti-domestic violence programs in Bernalillo, Sandoval, Valencia, Doña Ana, and Santa Fe counties created works based on the theme “How I Want the World to See Me,” using canvas as their medium.
The first seven years of the annual contest have proven that communicating ideas and emotions through art and writing fosters thought and discussion among youth on how to change their lives for the better. The contest provides these children with a positive opportunity to express their struggles, look toward the future, and celebrate artistic effort.
The contest is supported by generous contributions from the legal community, whose participation is so meaningful to the employees of the various juvenile justice centers, children’s court judges, and attorneys who work tirelessly with very limited resources on behalf of the children. Donations enable organizers to purchase canvas, art supplies, and prizes and to set up the exhibit.
The Children’s Law Section would like to thank those who have made the Eighth
Annual Art and Writing Contest possible.
