Past themes included:

“What makes a beautiful community?”


International Art Contest perception

This year we asked:

How could we create a more peaceful world?

The theme stimulated students’ thinking about global issues & improving quality of life for all.


  • Sample titles of artwork: perception

  • Let’s Build Bridges Between Countries where People Who Live Differently Can Meet and Fish Together

  • Friendship and beauty grow from planting the seeds together

  • Happiness Is: A Friend who is Different from Me

  • If I can get Along with my Sister, the Whole World Can Too

  • (an entry from Kansas)


Global perspectives2

Conclusions

- Cooperative extension addresses universal needs (we’re more alike than different)

Even small changes in our messaging can make big shifts in perceptions

- Even small programs can encourage global perspectives
