The National Institutes of Health Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) wants teens and young adults to share their ideas—through art—about how prevention can help improve people’s health, no matter who they are or where they live. Their original artwork may be featured on ODP’s website and social media, and winning entries will be awarded $500–$3,500! Up to five prizes will be awarded for each category: Teens (13–17 years old) and Young Adults (18–22 years old).
🎨 About the competition
ODP wants teens and young adults between the ages of 13 and 22 to show us what people or communities can do to:
- Prevent disease and injury
- Promote more equitable health outcomes for everyone
Original artwork may be featured on ODP’s website and social media, and winners could even be awarded up to $3,500!
Awards range from $500 to $3,500 each.
- Up to five prizes will be awarded for the Teen category (13–17 years old).
- Up to five prizes will be awarded for the Young Adult category (18–22 years old).
By sparking creativity and curiosity about how prevention can improve the health of all people, ODP hopes this challenge will stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering, and math, as well as prevention and health equity. Artwork will also provide insights into the perspectives of young people about some of the issues that make it difficult for people to be as healthy as possible and ways to overcome those challenges to improve health for everyone.
