LGBT Youth Creative Writing/Video Competition

I want to take a few lines to make sure everyone knows about a contest underway for LGBT Heritage month in Los Angeles. The LGBT Heritage Creative Writing/Video Competition is brought to us by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Christopher Street West (LA Pride). The competition is open for submissions from youth, grades 6-12. The submission can be in the form of an essay or a 1-3 minute video. The best essays will be selected by a panel of judges and the top three will be awarded cash prizes and the opportunity to perform their essay/video at the LGBT Heritage Month opening ceremonies. If you know anyone in this age range and think they might have interest in submitting, use the information below.

I can't wait to see the submissions and meet the creative minds of our future.
