NIMHD Hosts National Art Competition

NIMHD is hosting an art challenge as part of its 10th anniversary celebration.

As part of its 10th anniversary celebration, the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities is hosting a national art competition inviting teens and adults to create images (paintings, drawings, photos, digital art, etc.) that express NIMHD’s vision: an America in which all populations will have an equal opportunity to live long, healthy and productive lives. 

The goal of the competition is to raise national public awareness about the prevalence and impact of health disparities and inspire further research on minority health and health disparities.

Submit art until Feb. 5, 2021. First, second and third place prizes will be awarded in two age categories: teen (16 to 18 years old at time of submission) and adult (19 years or older). 

Entries may be submitted by an individual or a group of individuals. For details, visit
