BARCC Poster Contest



Art. Ideas. Creativity ... Can change the world.


The BARCC Poster Contest is an opportunity for youth in Greater Boston to create a poster and have their art work displayed in schools, neighborhood community centers, youth agencies, and on the web.  They can also win great prizes including a Nintendo Wii, an Ipod Shuffle, and movie gift cards.  All youth who enter will have their registration fee waived for the Walk for Change, get a t-shirt, and will be recognized at an Award Ceremony at the end of the Walk. 

This year the poster must address one of three themes:

  1. What is sexual violence?
  2. How does sexual violence affect your world, home, relationships, school, community, etc…?
  4. Why do you care about ending sexual violence?
