Call for submissions: Convention on the Rights of the Child Online Art Exhibit
18 @ 18 Online Art Exhibit: Call to Action
The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is celebrating its 18th anniversary.
In 1989, world leaders decided that children needed a special convention
just for them because people under 18 years old (children) often need
special care and protection that adults do not. The leaders also wanted
to make sure that the world recognized that children have human rights too.
This fall, the Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) is
celebrating its 18th Anniversary, and as part of the activities to
commemorate this historic event Voices of Youth wants to create an
online art exhibit with your submissions.
