Deadline Extended for Winter Institute Contest for Young Artists & Writers

Due to the many challenges that Mississippi communities have faced recently, The William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation has extended the deadline to March 26 for its Community of the Future Creatives Showcase submissions. This arts contest invites middle and high school students to reflect on the life-altering events of the past year and envision what comes next. We hope that you will share this opportunity with your young artists, their families, and other friends.
