The Links, Incorporated hosts a National Poster Arts Competition every other year. Young artists who depict a chosen national theme are awarded for their work. The theme reflects a relevant issue in the community, either locally or nationally. This year's theme was: The Art of Social Justice to Transform Communities. Entries are judged on a local level prior to submitting to the national level for further judging. In January of 2023, members of the Hilton Head (SC) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated chose Madison Butler as our contestant for her beautiful Social Justice entry, An Expression of Poverty and Homelessness, she was presented with a bountiful basket filled with art supplies. Both Madison and her mother, Dafiney Butler were joined by members of The Arts Facet to celebrate the occasion.
