Elizabeth Peratrovich Multi-Media Contest

Elizabeth Peratrovich Multi-Media Contest "Civil Rights Issues in Alaska: Past, Present, and Future."

We welcome essays, poetry, songs, artwork and videos about Native Civil Rights Issues in Alaska and how they affect Alaskans either in the past, present issues or concerns about the future. The goal of our Committee is to encourage students to learn about Native Issues that involve civil rights. Elizabeth & Roy Peratrovich worked on a number of civil rights issues; many of those issues are still affecting Alaskan Native peoples today.

Essay Criteria:

  • 1-2 pages for 4-6th Graders

  • 2-3 pages for Middle School

  • 3-4 pages for High School Students

    Students essays in each level will be chosen based on the content and writing skills to match each level of education to be determined by each level of teaching standards. All work to be submitted by Feb. 1st, 2020. Contact Information or Questions: Alaska Native Sisterhood, EP Day Chair Sid Hartley, 907.220.7921.
