Louisiana caregivers, you need to be heard

The Geaux Talk campaign gives Louisiana parents and caregivers the tools to start conversations about sexual health at home and to contact their school board members about including comprehensive sex education (CSE) in their child’s school curriculum.

Geaux Talk Hosts Youth and Young Adult Art Contest

Geaux Talk, a program of the Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI), is focused on increasing access to health services and information for young people. In advance of releasing a report looking at the strengths, challenges, and opportunities impacting youth and young adult health in the Shreveport area, youth between the ages of 13 and 21 are invited to submit pieces of art for the Geaux Talk (and Create!) About Your Health Art Contest. Submissions should answer the question: “What is the greatest health issue facing young people today?”

To enter, send a registration form and a quality scan or a digital photograph (PDF/JPG files only) of visual art to [email protected] by 5 p.m. on December 10.

Winners will be announced the first week of January. First place will win $400, second place will win $200, and third place will receive $100.
