Action for Media Education (AME) and its partners – the International Janusz Korczak Association, Child Rights in Action, and the Northwest Center for Media Literacy welcome you to our festival of talent, thoughtfulness, humor, and resilience from children and youth —ages 3 to 19 and their families from 23 countries – Australia, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Mexico, Nepal, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Switzerland, The Gambia, The Netherlands, Tunisia, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and U.SA. During a short period of time from December 15, 2020 to January 15, 2021, over 350 young people submitted some of their impressive work in a wide variety of artistic mediums. 

The Holiday Season 2020 has been made possible thanks to the commitment and many hours of meticulous work of AME’s Executive Director, Dr. Marilyn Cohen, and our International Showcase Coordinator Dr. Tatyana Tsyrlina-Spady, and the team of national and local coordinators.
