The Black Women’s Health Creative Expression Competition is a medium for local high school students to help meet conference goals and objectives. At the start of the school year, students from high schools throughout Metro New Orleans are invited to participate in the competition by submitting original works of visual art, spoken word, dance, poetry, and dramatic interpretation.
Students convene at Tulane in December to present their work, before a panel of professional artists, who award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes in subcategories as well as the overall competition. All entrants receive nominal honoraria for their participation. Click here for more information about the Black Women’s Health Creative Expression Competition.
