In recognition of the United Nations International Day of Peace (September 21, 2020), the CelebYou Talent Challenge App supported Stand4Peace (https://stand4peace.org) and launched the CelebYou Shape Peace Together Challenge.
The Challenge invited people of all ages, from all over the U.S., to submit a video to the CelebYou Talent Challenge App to show how they are working to Shape Peace Together. The Challenge began on Friday, September 18, 2020 and ends on Sunday, October 18, 2020. To enter the challenge all you have to do is download the CelebYou Talent Challenge App from the Apple App Store (for free) or visit https://celebyou.com.
CelebYou and Stand4Peace will select 5 Challenge winners from among all submissions. Each winner will receive a customized PEACE Pole (as well as the admiration of their friends, family and others who believe in Peace). PEACE Poles are sanctioned by the United Nations as an internationally-recognized symbol of hope, standing for PEACE on earth. Each PEACE Pole shares the message May Peace Prevail on Earth in different languages on each of its four sides. There are estimated 250,000 PEACE Poles in every country in the world.
“Stand4Peace sees each PEACE Pole planted as a sign of “standing-up” for peace in your community,” said Karen Wooldridge, Co-Founder of Sand4Peace.
“Working together as global citizens starts locally,” said Mark Burrell, CEO of CelebYou Talent Challenge. “CelebYou decided to use its resources to support the amazing work that Stand4Peace is doing, on a local level, to help unify peace through education, which truly demonstrates what each of us can do, on a personal level, to bring peace to our friends, family, communities, and the world as a whole.”
Stand4Peace honored The United Nations Day of Peace by holding a heart-felt online event in partnership with the Compton Unified School District and Manhattan Beach Unified School District on September 21, 2020 from 11:40 a.m. Pacific Time to 12:10 p.m. Pacific Time. Students from more than 40 schools in the greater Los Angeles area attended the video streaming event, which was also open to the public.
