Ages 10 - 21 - NYC residents only

We want to know what issues matter to you most.

Choose a topic - racial justice, freedom of speech, immigrants’ rights, LGBTQ rights or something else – then make some noise: And let NYC hear your voice. Too many youth in NYC don’t know what their rights are, you can help change that.

Thousands of Dollars in Prizes! No topic is off limits. All mediums are accepted.

Deadline to submit is Friday, May 30 – Entries will be reviewed starting April 2. Educators get prizes for submitting the most student entries!
