Encountering a contest.

The thought-provoking designs on the opposite page are a product of the OAS Inter-American Poster Contest, which attracted over 500 entries from 30 different member countries in 1988. Based on the overwhelming response to this contest, the Organization is sponsoring a second competition with the theme "Encounter and Exchange." To stimulate creativity and a wide-ranging interpretation of the theme, contestants are invited to submit in one of several forms: essay, short fiction, dramatic script, or video and film. Participants must be secondary school students and citizens of OAS member states, other than the United States. The "National History Day Program," in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution, will conduct a similar competition for high school students in the U.S.

All entries must be received by the OAS National Office in the contestant's respective country no later than December 15, 1991. In addition to receiving cash prizes, the winners of the Inter-American Contest will travel, along with their teachers, to the United States to take part in the National History Day celebrations at the University of Maryland and in Washington, D.C. in June, 1992.
