Art & Essay Contest

Since 2009, the Children in the Fields Campaign has hosted its art and essay contest annually to provide a safe platform to showcase farmworker children’s heartwarming and compelling stories on the national stage, and to empower them as they find the power in their voices.

Every year, CIFC receives thousands of entries for farmworker children around the United States. Their stories are very emotional, and must be seen and heard by everyone, especially lawmakers.  It is our hope that the stories received through the contest, can help us change the narrative, and find the needed change to protect farmworker children in our Country.
