In Punching the Air, Amal finds the freedom to express himself in his art and poetry, which brings him solace in unspeakably dark circumstances. What act of self-expression brings you solace in tough times? Is it writing or painting? Dancing or cooking? Or something else? Tell us about it in no more than 750 words or in the artistic medium of your choosing.
Please submit written works in PDF format. Artistic media should be submitted as a jpeg for still images or as a link for video format. Please one submission per entrant. This contest is for middle school and high school students and adults. Be sure to include the following with your submission:

-Age category (middle school, high school, or adult)
-Email address
-Phone number

Entries can be submitted to obot@fplct.org. Contest winners will be notified before the reception and will be invited to read and display their works. There will be a winner chosen for each age category among the writing submissions and a winner for each category among the artistic submissions.
