Who are YOU under the mask?

Attention native youth IPTF is starting it’s yearly art contest! The theme this year is “Who are YOU under the mask”.  With everything going on in the world we want to be able to see who you are outside of the pandemic. Get the chance to express yourself through art, and maybe inspire someone along the way 🙂

  • And more!!!

Get the chance to get CASH PRIZES through your art!!!!
