    Enter your artwork in a global competition!

    I'm a teacher from the Calgary Board of Education and I would like to invite you to take part in a global art and photography competition.

    You and/or your students are invited to submit artwork and digital photography that seek to capture the issue of homelessness and poverty in this exciting global competition.
