This exhibition is a collaboration between the Delray Beach and Boynton Beach chapters of Sister Cities International.
The Young Artists and Authors Showcase (YAAS) is an annual contest that encourages youth between the ages of 13 to 22 worldwide to express the mission of Sister Cities International through original artwork, literature, and photography. Submissions are centered around an annual theme and judged based on originality, composition, and theme interpretation. The winner(s) from each city will then have their winning piece sent to Sister Cities International for the Young Artists And Scholars (YAAS) competition.
“One World: Out of Many, We are One”
How can internationally engaged future leaders help communities address global challenges of – social unity and peace – in the 21st century?; How does international experience affect an individual’s or community’s ability to adapt? What are some examples/illustrations of coming together and celebrating our humanity?
This year’s theme asks students to explore these questions by highlighting citizen diplomacy and the creative ways that we create peace through people-to-people interaction.
