YMCA Youth and Family Services

TELL YOUR STORY

Application Deadline December 15, 2018

MORE THAN a youth in foster care.
MORE THAN a statistic.
MORE THAN a label.

This event is an opportunity for youth to freely share their talents, emotions, cultures, identities, and life stories through art in the presence of supportive connections. Join us for an evening of artistic expression and leave with so much more.

HOW TO ENTER

There is no cost to enter and there are no prizes to gain other than the immense satisfaction of creating and sharing art! Submissions are due to the review team by December 15, 2018. 

All entries will be reviewed by January 30th, 2019. We look forward to celebrating artistry and supporting youth in telling their stories! 

ART CATEGORIES

There are six arts categories—dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts. There are four presentation divisions— live feature entries, live entries on the gallery floor, exhibit entries throughout the gallery, and printed entries in event publication. See the descriptions for requirements.
