Federation of Families of South Carolina to hold Statewide Art Contest for the South Carolina Children’s Mental Health Awareness Poster

January 21, 2021

Did you know that 1 in 5 children and youth in South Carolina experiences a mental health condition in a given year? The Federation of Families of South Carolina (FFSC) holds an annual statewide Art Contest to raise awareness about Children’s Mental Health in South Carolina!

This year’s Art Contest theme is “Messengers of Hope: You are Not Alone!” FFSC recognizes the month of May as Children’s Mental Health Month and celebrates National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week, which is observed the first full week of May.

For the past 18 years, the Art Contest has been a positive, creative outlet for children and youth (up to age 25) to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma that keeps children and youth from being identified and treated for their behavioral and mental health needs. The 2021 Poster will be designed using the winning art that best represents the theme “Messengers of Hope: You are Not Alone!”

The prizes are as follows: 1st place: $100, 2nd place: $50 & 3rd place: $25

Deadline for entries: Friday, January 29, 2021, by 5:00 p.m.
