The Paula Pfeffer and Cheryl Johnson-Odim Political Cartoon Contest is a vehicle through which Columbia College Chicago students participate in the political discourse, demonstrate their artistic skills, and showcase their analytical abilities. Sam Pfeffer, Emeritus Trustee at Columbia College Chicago, endowed the contest and named it after his wife, Paula.

Housed in the Department of Humanities, History, and Social Sciences (HHSS), the competition is sponsored by the Office of the Dean in the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences in collaboration with The Columbia Chronicle.
