Life and Legacy of Cesar E. Chavez – The Art of Social Justice
Calling all Youth! La Union del Pueblo Entero invites you to enter the Life and Legacy of Cesar E. Chavez – the Art of Social Justice Art and Essay Contest for a chance to win an art kit and journal! The contest will be part of our efforts to celebrate and promote the 50th Anniversary of the United Farm Workers and the life and legacy of UFW co-founder Cesar E. Chavez.
Contest Rules and Guidelines:
All youth ages 6-17 currently living in the Rio Grande Valley are eligible to enter. We will award 3 winners based on age in these age groups: 6-9, 10-13, 14-17.
Your artwork can be about the life and legacy of Cesar Chavez, or it can be about ways we can continue Cesar’s legacy at home, at school, or in the community. We’re looking for drawings, essays, paintings, sculpture, collage, or whatever format helps you express yourself.
Why not teach about the life and legacy of Cesar and the UFW in your classroom and encourage your students to enter? Learn more about Cesar and the UFW by downloading this short bio and coloring book. And check out these great resources for educators on Cesar and the union.
