PADC art and writing showcase | Call for student submissions

Piedmont Anti-Racism and Diversity Committee (PADC) is calling for students to contribute to the second annual Art and Writing Showcase. 

All submissions will be featured in PADC’s upcoming Dr. Martin Luther King Celebration, which will be held on Monday, Jan. 16 at the Alan Harvey Theater. All contributors will also be entered in a raffle to win prizes, including ten $25 gift cards. 

This year’s theme comes from Dr. King’s quote: “This call for a world wide fellowship that lifts neighborly concern beyond one’s tribe, race, class and nation, is in reality a call for an all embracing and unconditional love for all men.” PADC asks that students think about what that quote means to them. 

Last year, Piedmont’s K-12 students produced a beautiful and powerful collection of illustrations, collages, poetry and essays. They were compiled into a slideshow that you can see on PADC’s website. You can also watch last year’s entire virtual celebration here

The deadline to submit is Jan. 10. Please see PADC’s website for rules and directions.
