I Make a Difference Contest Accepting Entries

I Make a Difference award winner at the Open House in 2011

In a quiet, simple way and sometimes in a big, lifechanging way, young people are making a positive difference in their families, with friends and in their communities. But how often do you hear about it?

Youth Services wants to give you a chance to tell your story! Our 3rd annual “I Make a Difference” contest is taking entries now through the end of April. Enter to win an iPod and to get a chance to meet and be honored by Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon.

How do I enter?

The rules are simple. Youth ages 12 to 21 can upload entries now through April 30 on our Facebook page under the I Make a Difference 2012 Application. They can also be emailed to youthservices@slco.org or dropped off at Youth Services, 177 W Price Ave (3610 South) in Salt Lake City, UT.

Facebook voting will then determine the top three entries in each category:

  • See Me: art, photos, sculptures
  • Hear Me: video, music, audio files
  • Know Me: short stories, essays, poems

The I Make a Difference committee will determine the final winners of each category. They will each win a free iPod shuffle and a certificate will be awarded by Mayor Corroon at an exhibit at the Salt Lake City Library on May 21, 2012 at 6 pm. All entries will be displayed in the I Make a Difference exhibit throughout the month of May.

Still have questions? Post them here and we’ll get you answers right away!
