Doctors for Change (DFC) invites Houston area youths (grades K-12th) to enter our 2019 art, creative writing, photography, and video media contest with a chance to win one of several prizes! View last year’s winning entries.

Our theme this year is Food as Fuel: What’s on Your Plate?

Think about the following questions to guide your entries:

  • How does eating healthy keep you active?
  • What foods help you achieve your potential at school and at play?
  • Why is a balanced meal important?
Submissions will be judged on creativity, written or visual impact, artistic merit,
and originality.

The contest will be open August 1 through November 1, 2019.

Contestants have a chance to win gift cards and other exciting prizes. Winning pieces will be published on the DFC website and showcased at a DFC event. The winning pieces may also be used in DFC publications and promotional materials.
