Many young people do not know the basic facts about HIV risk and prevention. Yet, according to the Centers for Disease Control, people under 25 are estimated to make up HALF of all new HIV infections in the U.S. This statistic demonstrates the large numbers of young people who are sexually active, have multiple partners without using protection, and lack vital information regarding the spread of HIV.
Don’t Turn Your Back on AIDS”© Awareness Art Competition provides an interactive environment orientation where high school students learn imperative information regarding HIV risks and prevention in the classroom through a 28-minute DVD. Students creatively interpret their views and artistically express themselves under their art teachers’ instruction. Consequently, their awareness is increased about contracting HIV and their risk behaviors are reduced.
This book highlights the amazing and insightful art works of these students.
A silent auction of the student art took place on Saturday, December 5, 2009 with 100% of the proceeeds going to HIV/AIDS prevention and education programs.
