Event description
Students! Show us your ideas for making healthy diets available to everyone through the World Food Day Poster Contest!

About this Event

Slow Food DC is thrilled to participate in the UN Food and Agriculture Organization's celebration of World Food Day! To mark the occasion, we're sending out a call to students for their best artwork for the World Food Day Poster Contest — open to kids aged 5-19.

Students can create a poster that illustrates their idea of what needs to be done to make healthy diets available for everyone and how each of us can improve our own diets. The posters will be displayed in a “gallery walk” of local submissions the afternoon of Saturday, October 26, featuring snacks, activities, and information tables led by local and international food organizations.

We'll take photos of student posters and vote on our local “people’s choice” winner! Need poster ideas? Check out the Eating Healthy Matters activity book, available at: http://www.fao.org/publications/card/en/c/CA4694EN/.

You can also learn more about World Food Day here: http://www.fao.org/world-food-day

Participation in the contest and the October 26 gallery walk are FREE, though we do request pre-registration.

Many thanks to our partners and supporters: Slow Food USA, DC’s Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE), United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Busboys and Poets, DC Urban Garden Network, and FreshFarm.
