Calling for Youth Submissions: Youth Art Book - "How your generation is shaping the world"

UpRISE, Colorado’s social justice youth tobacco control movement, creates a “Statewide Activity” each year to generate action around issues important to teens. The Statewide activity is created by UpRISE’s Youth Action Board. This year, UpRISE’s Youth Action Board has chosen to co-create a book with young Colorado artists about how youth are shaping their world.

We invite you to share this “call for submissions” with youth, youth-serving organizations, or schools. Art can be in many forms including: poetry, creative writing, visual art, performance art, music, sculpture and more.

Art submissions can respond to one or more of the following prompts:
  • How are you and your generation shaping the world?
  • What does a fair/just world look like to you?
  • How does your current world affect your wellbeing?
  • What would you like others to take away from the power or wisdom you hold as a young person?
  • How do you see youth voices improving your community?


Young people can submit their work of art this submission formSubmissions must be received by March 19th, 2021. All contributors will receive a FREE copy of the artbook (available in June 2021).
Help us show Colorado, how youth are shaping this world!
