Calling Young Artists and Writers
FFLIC is launching our new coloring and activity book:
Let Kids Be Kids: A Story of Challenging Youth Incarceration in Louisiana.
As part of the launch we want to uplift the visual and performance art and non-fiction writing (such as true stories, poetry, and essays) of our young people in Louisiana! We will use the submissions as part of our advocacy efforts to end youth incarceration while offering youth a chance to win a prize.
Youth from FFLIC's Black Girls Rising and Ujima Projects will judge the art and writing in three age categories: 10-14, 15-19, and 20-24. One winner from each age category will receive the following: $50 visa gift card, a LUSH bodycare product gift bag, Let Kids Be Kids t-shirt, FFLIC mask, one-year FFLIC Membership, and inclusion in our Media Campaign. Winners will be announced before the end of May.
We are truly grateful for the artistic expressions of our youth and will do our best to ensure that youth receive credit for your work. We will use the submissions as part of our advocacy efforts to end the school-to-prison pipeline. We plan to exhibit the art at the statehouse at FFLIC’s Day at the Capitol on May 13, 2021 and will send all participants information about the event so that they can attend at their own discretion.
By submitting your work you (and/or when applicable, your parent/guardian) grant FFLIC the right to edit, use, and reuse the materials; agree that such use shall be without payment of fees, royalties, special credit or other compensation; and release FFLIC of all claims, demands, and liabilities whatsoever in connection with the use of the materials.
