The international Youth Art competition is an opportunity for youth to share their creative talents with others.

The theme of the competition—"Arise and Shine Forth" - comes from Doctrine and Covenants 115:4-6. In this revelation, the Lord speaks to all the people of His Church, issuing them a call to action. He invites Latter-day Saints from all nations to "arise and shine forth" so their "light may be a standard for the nations."

He asks them to join together to support one another and become a "refuge from the storm." With the call for entries, The Church History Museum invited the youth of the worldwide Church to ponder this passage in the Doctrine and Covenants and create works of art that express what the Lord's request "Arise and Shine Forth" means to them.
