The focus of the contest is the Georgia immigrant experience. We invite high school artists from across Georgia to depict how they perceive the life of immigrants. Scholarships are given for first-, second-, and third-place winners, and all submissions are displayed in a prominent public venue each year.
The purpose of the contest is to uplift the voices of Latino and immigrant youth and to empower them to convey their message of struggle and hope to a broad audience. The art contest enhances educational opportunity and connect the students to a broader network of professional artists.
