Applications due: Awards for Youth in Foster Care


We are now accepting applications for the 19th Annual Awards for Youth in Foster Care!

Youth Communication sponsors this essay contest to promote a more positive image of New York City foster youth among agency staff, youth workers, and the general public.

Fifteen young people will be awarded prize money at a ceremony in spring, 2017. Five Grand Prize winners will receive $1,000 each, and 10 additional winners will receive prizes of $500 to $700 each. The prize money can be spent however the winner likes, although it is recommended that it be spent on education-related activities. 

Applications are due on March 3, 2017

See all information in the flyer and application [pdf].
