The Adobe Youth Voices Aspire Awards has partnered with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) to offer the opportunity to implement active community change . It intends to provide three youth-led projects with grants to support the implementation of innovative initiatives.
The challenge is to use imagination, creativity, and innovation through the use of digital tools and social media to produce a short video outlining your proposal for a new or existing initiative that will benefit other youth in your community. "This is your chance to make a difference in the world, report about it, and show the progress made to millions of people through the Adobe Youth Voices network, UNICEF’s global social media feeds, and the Voices of Youth community."
First prize receives US$40,000. Second prize receives US$30,000. Lastly, the audience award-winning project receives US$20,000.
