Green Dot is Coming to Alaska - Pre-launch Opportunity for Artists

Click on image for enlarged view
The Green Dot Violence Prevention Strategy is a new way of thinking about and doing violence prevention. Green Dot is about the belief that change is possible, harnessing the power of individual choices to shift our current norms. A green dot is simply your individual choice at any given moment to make our community safer.

As we are getting ready to launch Green Dot statewide, throughout Alaska, we are inviting Alaskans from all around the state to submit ideas for a "GREEN DOT ALASKA" poster which will be used on all of the Green Dot training materials statewide. Designs should include the words "Green Dot Alaska" and a visual graphic which captures the spirit of Alaska and the message of Green Dot. For more infomation about Green Dot, see www.livethegreendot.com and/or stop by or contact the UAF Women's Center, 112 Eielson Building, UAF, call 474-6311 or email kayt.sunwood@alaska.edu

To enter your poster, submit your idea electronically in PDF format to:
Dorothy Edwards
(put "Alaska poster" in the subject line)

or submit a "paper copy" of your idea by mail to:
Dorothy Edwards
7505 Oriole Ave
Springfield, VA 22150

Deadline for entry is July 21, 2012
Must be mailed or received @ Live the Green Dot by July 21 to be eligible

Submitting your poster idea to Green Dot etc., Inc. indicates your permission for the organization to use it in a manner appropriate for educational and promotional purposes and thereby transfers ownership of the poster to Green Dot etc., Inc. 

So much to do this coming week plus!
