National Liberty Museum's 2010 Caretoon Contest


The National Liberty Museum is always seeking ways to involve young people in activities that promote thoughtfulness about peace and tolerance and the people who choose to encourage others to be caring and accepting. One of these ways in which this phenomenal museum does just this is through its Caretoon Contest.
A Caretoon is an original cartoon that reflects a positive theme.

The National Liberty Museum’s Caretoon Contest was created after a Danish newspaper published a cartoon which caused many people to respond with violence. To channel this powerful art form for a positive purpose, the Museum started sponsoring an annual Caretoon Contest and invited the public to create cartoons which expressed themes of peace and celebrations of diversity.

This year’s theme is Heroes of Character. Through the generous support of the L.W. Pierce Family Foundation, 4 prizes of $500.00 each will be awarded. This contest attracts thousands of submissions from across the country and around the world.
