Represent Magazine is sponsoring an award to promote a more positive image of New York City foster youth among agency staff, youth workers and the general public. Twenty young people from New York City will be awarded prize money at a ceremony in June 2010. Five Grand Prize winners will receive $1,000 each, and 15 additional winners will receive $500-$600 each. Any current or former foster youth in the New York City foster care system born in 1989 or later is eligible to apply. Entrants can be nominated by any adult (including teachers, mentors, agency staff, youth workers, religious leaders, foster parents, or biological parents).
