The Sister Cities International Young Artists and Authors Showcase encourages youth from around the globe to consider the honorable mission of Sister Cities International and express their interpretation of that mission through art and writing promoting peace through mutual respect, understanding, cooperation through one individual, one community at a time.

The local competition occurs each winter. One piece of artwork from Mesa and one from each of our sister Cities as well as the top placing essays are then submitted to Sister Cities International, where a panel of judges selects Grand Prize Winners and Finalists based on originality, composition, and theme interpretation. Each Grand Prize Winner is awarded $1,000.
