An essay contest marking National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (March 10) is open to area young people. Sponsored by the Institute of Women and Ethnic Studies, the contest requests that people ages 11-24 consider the theme of "How can we get to ZERO?" to explore HIV/AIDS-related topics like stigma, testing and care support, and the impact to the family. Submissions should be between 500-1,500 words, typed and double-spaced, using 12-point font. Essays must be received by 11:59 p.m. on March 1. For more information, email Melanie Powers at mpowers@iwesnola.org or telephone her at 504-484-0410.
