Please share this with children and organizations you know. Schools, teachers, faith groups and other youth organizations are encouraged to sponsor and guide students with their submissions. We began these programs in 2017 when Pax Christi Little Rock (PCLR) worked with school counselor Mildred Calhoun to develop a peace curriculum for Little Rock’s Rockefeller Elementary. The following year we worked with Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) and Little Rock School District to expand these non-violence lesson plans and resources for elementary age students. In 2021 over 15,000 students participated from Little Rock School District, Pulaski County Special School District, and many private schools. Today schools and students from all over the state participated in Peace Week. In our first year of the Peace Week Art Contest and Peace Week Essay Contest we had over 500 entries from all over the state: from Bella Vista to McGehee and Blytheville to Eldorado.
