Contest Description

"The Connected World: What binds us together?" was the theme for the 2004-5 RESPECT Poster Contest. The purpose of the contest is to promote refugee awareness education. Following the three-step program of involvement with refugee education, RESPECT students worldwide brainstormed this theme and documented their responses in art form. Representations of their thoughts and feelings took shape in 8.5" x 11" or A4 sized posters.

Due to the multitude of entries to this year's poster contest, we were able to choose two winners. All entries were from non-refugee students. Winning entries are made into postcards RESPECT International will use with initial correspondence between refugee and non-refugee student partners. Participants were from North American, European, and Asian countries.

Three-Step Program

RESPECT International promotes refugee education and sponsorship in a three-step program:

  1. Raise awareness on refugee issues among youth by providing educational communities worldwide with information, training and resources.
  2. Build bridges between youth from refugee schools and non-refugee schools through letter exchanges and beyond.
  3. Take actions in helping refugees by organizing awareness-raising events to educate others on refugee issues and to raise funds for partner refugee schools.
