The world lost one of its greatest leaders when Nelson Mandela passed away last year, but his legacy and efforts to advance equality and social justice will forever live on. To honor Mandela’s life and work, the Nelson Mandela Foundation recently announced a design competition for a permanent monument to “symbolize the importance of ‘service to one’s fellow human,’ a mantra that will help current and future generations keep the legacy alive.” The competition is open to all U.S. residents over the age of 13 and will close on October 15 at 5 P.M. PST. The winner will be announced December 2014 and will be awarded $1,000. The winning design will be constructed at San Mateo, CA’s Skylawn Memorial Park where it will overlook the Pacific Ocean.
