Young Artists and Authors take note “The Art of Diplomacy” is the 2018 YAAS Theme

Submission due March 1st, 2018

Each year, the Young Artists and Authors Showcase (YAAS) encourages youth from around the globe to express the mission of Sister Cities International through original artwork, literature, film, and photography.

Showcasing their imagination, creativity, and passion for world peace, students interpret a designated annual theme into works of art and literature. The work is sent from sister city member communities to Washington, DC, where a panel of judges selects Grand Prize Winners and Finalists based on originality, composition, and theme interpretation. Each Grand Prize Winner is awarded $1,000.

The 2018 Theme: The Art of Diplomacy

Sister Cities International aims to promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation – one individual, one community at a time. This year’s theme, “The Art of Diplomacy” showcases the importance of both institutional and citizen diplomacy efforts to achieve peace.
