Sioux Falls Young Artists and Authors Showcase

This year’s theme, “We’re Going Places,” showcases the importance of student exchange and international travel in order to achieve peace. Students ages 13-18 are encouraged to draw inspiration from personal travel experience, international friendships, or their own interpretation of how peace is achieved through exchanges and travel. The overall goal is to present their vision of where the future will lead.
