We’re holding a video contest for kids between the ages of 15 and 21, and we want to hear from you! Our goal is to create an online advice resource for youth, by youth – and that’s where we need YOUR help!

Upload a video (2 minutes or less) to YouTube. In your video, describe an experience that caused you to grow. For example, maybe you achieved a goal you had been working toward, solved a problem, made a good choice, or helped things go better for a friend. That’s the kind of thing we’re looking for!

Share your story by sending us your video, and you could win a $100 gift card. Check out the Rules section for more information!

Watch the videos above to get an idea of what we’re looking for, and check out our tips for more ideas!
