So I know this is lame, but I work for a organization that deals in teen pregnancy prevention and I thought some of you artists might be interested in a contest we are having. The grand prize is $1500 and your art will appear in Teen People Magazine and my organization will turn them into postcards that we distribute across the country. Here's the announcement:

There are just two weeks left for teens (ages 13 - 21) to enter the 7th annual “Do Your Part with Art” PSA contest sponsored by Teen People Magazine and The National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy. Take part in this contest by creating an original public service ad that spreads the message of teen pregnancy prevention.

Winning entries will be seen by teens across the country in the pages of Teen People magazine. In addition, cash prizes will be awarded. The first-place winner receives $1,500; two second-place winners get $500 each; and six third-place winners earn $200 each. This is a great way to get teens talking about sex and its consequences. Send all entries by May 26, 2006.

I realize that many of you are simply to old to enter, but I encourage all of you who are 21 and under to submit a piece. It doesn't need to be perfect; we'll work with art directors at Teen People to make them pretty. I also hope that those of you who can't enter will help spread the word about the contest to others. Good luck!

i hope the teen pregnancy prevention is about promoting condoms and birth control and not about abstinence... cause promoting abstinence doesnt seem to work.
