On May 29, 2019, Represent magazine and Youth Communication celebrated the outstanding writing, persistence, and achievements of 10 young people at the 21st Annual Awards for Youth in Foster Care, hosted by the College Board.
Each winner received a prize of $1,100 and recognition of their writing, resiliency, and service to others.
Each winner submitted two essays for the competition: one about something they take pride in and another about a time they helped someone else.
NYC City Council Member Robert E. Cornegy delivered the keynote address, praising the winners for their “compassion and caring for others” even while struggling to overcome obstacles themselves.
