‘Regnuh’ poster project invites children’s ideas on turning hunger around.

On the heels of senior high and senior adult campaigns last year on "Regnuh: Turning Hunger Around," the opportunity comes for younger folk to put forth their ideas on reducing global hunger. Kid’s Regnuh Poster Project invites children ages 6-14 to illustrate ways humankind can better respond to the world’s one billion people who lack adequate food.

The Regnuh Poster Project is sponsored by the Global Food Crisis Fund as part of its 25th anniversary celebration. While Regnuh (hunger spelled backward) is the overaching theme, the posters may also illustrate biblical sayings, Brethren teachings, or health and environment concerns related to hunger.

The drawings are to be on 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper with the name and age of the child, congregation, and district legibly noted on the reverse side. Entries are to be postmarked by April 30 and sent to the Global Food Crisis Fund, 1451 Dundee Ave., Elgin, IL 60120.

Tentative plans are to display the drawings at Annual Conference or to post them on the Global Food Crisis Fund website.

--Howard Royer is manager of the Global Food Crisis Fund for the Church of the Brethren General Board.
