New Yorkers For Children (NYFC) invites you to put your talents to work to help raise awareness for our Back to School Package Program – while publicizing your own work AND getting a chance to win a cash prize!
A panel of film and media professionals will choose the top three films, and NYFC donors will vote for the winner in a virtual competition on October 29th, 2020. The winning video will be featured on the NYFC website for an entire year, and all three videos will be featured on our social media accounts and newsletter!
Film submissions are due by midnight on Tuesday, September 1st, 2020.
NYFC focuses on enrolling youth in college, supporting them through graduation, and helping them gain the skills needed to enter the workforce through the following direct-services: The Back to School Package Program (BTS), The Nicholas Scoppetta Scholarship Program (Nick’s Scholars), various Emergency Funds, The Spirit Award, and the Financial Empowerment Fund. Other signature non-scholarship programs and events include The Youth Advisory Board (YAB), Peer Mentoring, and Network to Success. When layered together, as they are designed to be, all of NYFC’s resources collectively provide each youth with post-secondary education support and tools, financial health support and coaching, career development training and mentoring, and a network of peer and adult support.
