ART IS A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE

Global Youth Murals allows K-12 students, ages 4-18, from around the world to express their unique global perspective through art. This year’s theme, One People, One World, well describes PTPI's mission of connecting people and cultures from all walks of life while celebrating diversity. To be considered for an award, submissions should arrive at PTPI World Headquarters in Kansas City, USA no later than October 30th. Additional information, including instructions for creating the murals, is available in our Global Youth Mural guidelines.
