anti-stigma poster contest in virtual format during  

The 2021 PAPRS Virtual Conference:

The RESPECT poster contest is an individual contest, not a group contest. Group submissions will not be accepted. 

The age groups are:

Adult (age 27 and older). 

 

Posters must be no more than 11” X 14” in size (half a sheet of poster board), and can be on any type of paper, poster board, foam board, etc. Artists may also use any other media or art supplies they choose (markers, colored pencils, paint, crayons, pens, pencils, charcoal, stickers, paper cut outs, photography, etc.). Artwork must be original and shall not use copyright protected material. If photos of people are used, please include a release signed by the person or persons in the photos which allows you to use the photo on your poster, and allows PAPRS to use the poster on websites and in other public arenas. Be creative and remember the theme is: 

 

Finding Success and Satisfaction in a Changing World. 

 

Make your poster and take a photo of it. Email the photo to Beth Ricker at egr1@comcast.net no later than Friday April 9, 2021. 

 

Please submit only one poster per email. Be sure the email message includes your age group, your name, full mailing address, phone number, and an email address where we can contact winners prior to the virtual board meeting. If you desire to keep your address and phone number private, you always have the option to list the Psych Rehab Provider and use the program name, address, phone number and email address for a specific PRS staff member.
