What is the Walgreens Expression Challenge?

Established by the Walgreen Co., The Walgreens Expressions Challenge is a peer-to-peer based health awareness initiative for high school teens. At the core of the Expressions Challenge is an incentive based contest for teens to showcase their creative perspective on healthy lifestyle choices. The Challenge motivates participants to voice their opinion on critical life issues they face daily through creative writing, visual arts and media arts. In addition to the Challenge, the Expressions Challenge hosts annual programs including Gallery Tours and Teen Summits.
