Mattie’s Peace Trees

Posted on: September 22nd, 2014 by jeni No Comments

An Annual Fall/Winter
Outreach Activity

Expressing peace – Mattie’s vision, your choice.

-

We share “Mattie’s peace vision” theme for the year. Participants are invited to express their vision of that peace theme in some way – artwork, photo expressions (of ornaments, people, places, artwork, and more). We provide simple step-by-step instructions for the activity. Then, we post all the submissions we receive — from individuals,  families, schools, and communities —  on our website. We gather all of your creative expressions together, and create one combined peace tree display that celebrates global peace. 

-

TIMEFRAME & DEADLINES:
-
Annual activity posted on website the month of March.
-
Submissions received from
April 1 through April 30
(National Poetry Month)
will be eligible for prized, and
included on the global peace tree
will will be posted during May.-
-
Each display featured prominently
throughout the year it is created,
then it is moved to our
Year-round Outreach or Archived Activities” pages.

Thank you for your patience.
The 2015 & 2016 Peace Tree activity were “on hold” as
Mattie’s mom dealt with cancer treatments and complications.
This free global activity will resume during 2017, 
in its NEW TIMEFRAME — National Poetry Month (April).
