Art News October 2015

 South Hill is so excited about our first lesson/poster contest.
 Students are brainstorming ideas to draw about the 30 Articles
 that make up our Human Rights.
A picture says a thousand words!

The Tompkins County Office of Human Rights (OHR) rolled out its countywide 28th Annual Arts Competition for K-12 youth in September 2015. The program, formerly known as the MLK Art & Poetry Competition, has been OHR’s cornerstone youth-based offering for nearly three decades. This year, the program has been revitalized with a new theme based on the 30 Articles of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (30  Articles).  The Human Rights Arts Competition is designed to expand possibilities for student expression around  issues related to universal rights - including civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights, while providing  teachers with strategies for discussing social justice themes in their classrooms.
