Youth Voices Speak Out
Youth Voices Speak Out is a powerful event that asks students to research, create a project, and share ways that people heal and build resilience in the face of mental health challenges. It is both a competition where students can win cash for creating the best projects and a showcase that hopes to normalize mental health challenges and provide resources and hope for those who are struggling.
Competition Submissions are due next Friday, January 19th at 5:00 p.m. at the front desk or submitted virtually. The event is open to both Middle and High School Students. Winners get cash prizes, and submissions make great additions to college applications and resumes. Students get credit in Honor Society for the time for projects and classes are offering extra credit as well!
