JAH Intersection Contest

Call for Submissions!

The Journal of Adolescent Health is seeking submissions to JAH Intersection on the theme of “The Love Language of Tomorrow's Leaders”

Sometimes it seems like the world is always in crisis — global warming, pandemics, war, and the fight for basic human rights. So much of how we work through these crises as global & local communities often depends on heavy involvement from young people. We rely on their energy, their ability to organize and disseminate information quickly, and their passion to push for justice. How can other generations communicate with today's adolescents and young adults in a way that conveys respect, sincerity, and trust? What inspires today's young people to mobilize, organize and advocate? If you are a young person or someone who works with, serves, or parents young people, send us your creative writing, photography or artwork on this theme! Submitted work may take the form of written word (e.g., poetry, personal narratives), or images (e.g., photographs or two-dimensional artwork). Learn more about JAH’s Intersection in the Guide for Authors.

Submissions will be reviewed and selected by the JAH Intersection Section Committee, and published at the discretion of The Intersection Section Editor(s), Editor-in-Chief, and Associate Editors.

Submit today for your chance to win. Monetary prizes will be awarded for First ($500), Second ($200), and Third place ($50). Winners will be announced at the SAHM Annual Meeting, March 7–10, 2023.
