The Contest entry period was from July 1, 2016 through September 15, 2016. Contestants were asked to produce an original creative work that gave artistic voice to their vision of how their life and the life of their family would change if they were paid a Living Wage.
The eighteen (18) forms of creative work are incredibly heartfelt and expressive of the Contestants’ experiences and feelings. Entries included a dance video, a recorded song, visual arts, posters, poems, and short stories.
The first place winner is receiving $1,250; second place winner will receive $750; and third place, $500.
