International Day of Peace was celebrated by countries around the world on Sept 21. In recognition of this day and 9/11, Global Awareness, a program of Au Pair in America sponsored a peace contest. Au Pairs answered the question, ‘What does Peace mean to you?’ Paint a picture, take a photo, write a poem, or sing a song. Entries were received from young women participating in the Au Pair program and were judged for creativity and message.
Tatiana Dulcey from Colombia, an Au Pair for a family in East Hampton, took 3rd place in the Global Awareness for her painting “No Borders, No War.”
