Awards for Youth in Foster Care

Youth Communication is sponsoring an award to celebrate the achievements of New York City youth in foster care. Ten young people will be awarded prize money at a ceremony in late May 2020. The prize money can be spent however the winner likes, although it is recommended that it be spent on education-related activities. Anyone born in 1999 or later who is or has been in the New York City foster care system is eligible. Applicants must write two essays to enter this contest, and can be nominated by any adult (including teachers, mentors, agency staff, youth workers, religious leaders, foster parents, or biological parents). Application deadline is March 2, 2020. Apply or download a flyer and application.
