The New York Civil Liberties Union today announced the winners of its annual Freedom of Expression contest, which invited young people in New York City to channel their creativity toward defending and expanding civil liberties in New York State and nationwide. The annual contest, funded by a grant from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Foundation, asks youth to explore a topic relevant to their lives and related to civil rights and liberties.
