It’s that time of year again! The NYCLU is sponsoring its annual Freedom of Expression contest. Students can win over $1,000 in cash prizes! This is a great youth opportunity, so please pass it on.

We ask the young people of New York City to tell us what civil liberties issues matter most to them. No topic is off limits. Students can speak out about racial justice, immigrants’ rights, freedom of speech, LGBT rights, and more. For a complete list, click here.

Then get creative! All mediums are accepted: write an essay or a poem, perform spoken word, or create a video, song or rhyme. Submit a drawing or piece of artwork, or create a public service announcement. The deadline for submissions is May 22.

For more information, please visit our website, www.nyclu.org/contest, email us at YouthWorkingGroup@nyclu.org or call 212.607.3361.
