Our goal is aim to promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation – one individual, one community at a time. Each year, the Young Artists and Authors Showcase (YAAS) encourages youth from around the globe to express the mission of Sister Cities International through original artwork, literature, film, and photography. Showcasing their imagination, creativity, and passion for world peace, students interpret a designated annual theme into works of art and literature.
This year’s theme, “The Art of Diplomacy” showcases the importance of both institutional and citizen diplomacy efforts to achieve peace.
