The 2nd Annual Youth Art Contest, hosted by the Mayor’s Initiative to End Bullying in Newport News, is looking for creative youth to showcase their talent. If they like to draw, sing, write, or are creative in any way, the Initiative would like to see how they would interpret this year’s theme: We Won’t Stand For Bullying, We All Connect. This is a great opportunity to get your child’s summer off to a very creative start!Art Contest Flyer_SC
