Municipal Youth Council Video Competition — 4th Annual

The 2015 youth council video competition asks youth councils to look at their own community and think about key issues affecting young citizens. Youth councils are involved in and contributes to city events, decision and projects. Councils were asked to look at their own city and ask: What is the most critical youth issue my city should consider in the upcoming year? Be creative and create an action plan that includes ideas for a solution to your issue/concern! Key elements: 1) include ways that young people or youth organizations could be part of the solution; 2) think of how their local government, businesses, civic and religious organizations, the chamber of commerce, community groups and other citizens could work together to resolve the issue; and 3) include a narrative action plan for resolution of the issue that provides a timetable and budget, if one is necessary.
