Title: The Kiss of Peace
This work relates to the search for peace because in the simple act of acceptance and forgiveness, this young girl and her brother create a moment of pure honesty and tranquility. It shows that any fight can be stopped, any conflict resolved, and any peace treaty created. As they bring peace into their lives, they also hand it on to all those who are able to witness this moment of goodness.

Title: Color Holds the World
This work relates to the search for peace because it takes the merging of all colors to create one world.
Honorable Mention: Jackie Cadiente, Grade 10
This work relates to the search for peace because like this girl, we are always trying to find the unconditional love which seems to be impossible in this world. Yet, if we all try, we may attain it and know we’ll be at peace knowing that we are safe and loved.
