CAMP Rehoboth is sponsoring the Third Annual World AIDS Day Student Art Contest. The contest is open to Sussex County residents attending middle or high school. CAMP Rehoboth chose to sponsor the Student Art Contest out of deep concern with the latest statistics released by the Centers for Disease Control. The data establishes that 50% of all new HIV infections occur in young people under the age of 25. In addition, national case surveillance data for people ages 13 to 24 revealed that the burden of HIV/AIDS falls most heavily and disproportionately on black and Hispanic youth. CAMP Rehoboth believes that accurate, age-appropriate information is our best hope for reducing these trends for our young citizens. By working with Sussex County school districts, CAMP Rehoboth hopes to ameliorate this situation.
Student submissions will interpret the theme – Stop AIDS: Keep the Promise and be judged on impact, relevance to HIV/AIDS awareness, clarity of message, visual design and creativity. All artwork must be mounted on 11 inches by 14 inches foam core. Photography, water color, tempera, oil, pastels, pencil, ink, markers, collage or mixed media will be accepted. Artwork must be delivered or mailed to CAMP Rehoboth, 37 Baltimore Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971 by the November 6, 2008 deadline.

I wonder--just thinkin' out loud--how long it will take for somebody to denounce this as infiltrating our public schools with a homosexual agenda.
