Earth Day 2020 Virtual Art Contest

Filed in Event News by on May 5, 2020

In recognition of Earth Day 2020, NSDI ( Nile Sisters Development Initiative ) collaborated with organizations across Los Angeles County to host a Virtual Art Contest. In artistic submissions, participating community members expressed the ways in which tobacco has negatively influenced their own health and that of their environment. Artists chose among three different themes to illustrate the reality behind tobacco use, waste, and secondhand smoke:

  • #SharetheAir
  • #TobaccoWasteisToxicWaste
  • #NoFlavorsNecessary

With help from the African Communities Public Health Coalition, Antelope Valley Partners for Health, Dignity Health–St. Mary’s Medical Center, the G.R.E.E.N. Foundation, and the National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence, NSDI collected contest submissions from Antelope Valley, San Gabriel Valley, and South Bay regions of Los Angeles County.

Announcement of contest winners and awarding of more than $150 in prizes took place on Earth Day, April 22. Most of the winning submissions represented youth, ages 12 to 16 years! All of the submissions demonstrated an inspiring commitment to keeping our planet and communities cleaner and healthier. The community should be very proud of all the young artists who shared their creative and impelling ideas with us!
