A new NIH Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) Youth Art Challenge asks young people ages 13–22 to create original artwork that shows how prevention can create better health for everyone. 

By sparking creativity and curiosity about how prevention can improve the health of all people, ODP hopes the challenge will stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering and math, as well as prevention and health equity. Artwork will also provide insights into the perspectives of young people about some of the issues that make it difficult for people to be as healthy as possible and ways to overcome those challenges to improve health for everyone.

Winning entries will be awarded $500-$3,500 and artwork will be featured on ODP’s website and social media. Teens and young adults can submit their original art until Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2024. Learn more at #ODPArtChallenge
