To All Art Poster Contest Sponsors and Participants

Thank you for your support of the Bergen County (NJ) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated’s commitment to our National Arts Poster Contest.  We want to ensure that our young people in Bergen County are consistently exposed to explore their interests in the arts.   Please read the following carefully. Along with a description of our theme,  we are including important information about how to submit your digital files as well as remind you of relevant information to make the submissions seamless.

      "The Art of Social Justice to Transform Communities"

The Arts are powerful forces that can mobilize communities, help with healing, speak to social justice, and inspire change!

Each competition has a unique theme. The 2021-2021 competition theme "The Art of Social Justice to Transform Communities" asks students to reflect and artistically express the work of Social Justice leaders, issues, and efforts — locally and nationally — that impact their community. There are four interrelated principles of social justice: equity, access, participation, and rights. Students should include this thematic direction in their art. Members and their partners should direct discussions with students around issues like racial justice, equal rights, food insecurity, mass incarceration, violence, participation in government and elected offices, hate crimes, law enforcement accountability, abuse, the justice system and similar causes and actions.


All submissions must be completed digitally


The deadline for submission is March 1, 2022
