    Muslim Student Association Art Contest

    The UConn MSA is holding a campus wide art contest to raise awareness for the Uighur genocide. Millions of muslims are being detained, tortured and forced into labor in concentration camps in China simply because of their religion. This is the largest human rights abuse and instance of religious persecution since the Holocaust. Through this contest they hope to raise student awareness about the crisis, and to create emotionally resonant and informative artwork that celebrates Uighur cultures and brings attention to these human rights violations. 

    This contest is open to all UConn students, including graduate students. Students can submit any type of art of any length whether it be video, painting, filmed monologue, creative writing, music, etc. There will be a $50 cash prize as well as Uighur themed merchandise for the winners. It is completely free to participate.

    Submissions are due on Sunday, November 15th at midnight and must be uploaded to this google form. The full list of rules is also in the google form.
