COMPETITION GUIDELINES

THEME: SHE IS COURAGE

This year’s theme is SHE IS COURAGE because SHE is the catalyzer of COVIDResilience. This can be expressed however you like – from women who are courageously protecting our people and planet, to courageous women who are at the frontlines of building a safer and more equitable tomorrow.
Collaborate with your loved ones at home (Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Grandma, Grandpa), maybe even your furry friends. Paint/draw/ dance to celebrate the important roles of women in this time of crisis and why we should honor their contributions.
