Children's Art Program


Applications for the 2024 Children's Art Program are now being accepted. Click on the button "2024 Submissions Forms" to download instructions. The Deadline for Submissions is April 20, 2024.

The annual WHL Children's Art Program is meant to foster greater awareness of hypertension in the young. Young people (under 18 years old) from around the world are invited to submit an art contribution depicting an aspect of high blood pressure awareness to help celebrate  World Hypertension Day.  

High blood pressure drives heart disease, a global public health problem, which begins in childhood. Most heart disease can be prevented, or the onset prolonged to much later in life, if action occurs early on in life. The art poster program is an attempt to teach children how a few basic minimal lifestyle changes for them and their families can make a big difference.

This year we are encouraging artwork related to the theme of healthy blood pressure, including:

  • Accurate and regular blood pressure measurement: Know Your Numbers
  • More physical activity & less screen time: Move Your Way: Walk, Run, Dance, Play.
  • A low sodium, heart healthy diet: Love Your Fruits & Veggies
  • Refraining from any kind of smoking: Stay Smokefree

Children can create an original drawing by hand with crayons, colored pencils, ink pens, markers, paint (acrylic or watercolor), or by using digital tools. Acceptable digital artwork formats include GIF, JPG, JPEG, and PDF. The artwork should be titled “World Hypertension Day 2024” in the artist’s language.

Contributing artists will be recognized with WHL award certificates, with artwork displayed on the WHL website and select pieces presented in the WHL Newsletter.

Artwork should be submitted through a World Hypertension League sponsor, which includes the members of the WHL Board and Council. Submissions should include:

  • GIF, JPG, JPEG or PDF of the artwork
  • Photo of artist (optional)
  • Name, age, and country of the artist
  • Name and e-mail of sponsor
  • Statement from parent/guardian and sponsor providing permission for artwork and artists to be displayed by the World Hypertension League.
