We will select judges from the Louisiana Arts community to judge writing in three age categories: 10-14, 15-19, and 20-24. One winner from each age category will receive $500 and a FFLIC gift bag. A runner up will receive $200 and a FFLIC gift bag in each category.
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 and transform the youth justice system. If we plan to use the writing we will try to send the participant the information about how it is being used.
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.
