A day-long conference of screenings, interactive presentations, and hands-on activities for high school students, the Youth Media Conference inspires and equips students to explore, appreciate, analyze, create and share screen media. The conference will promote youth participation and representation in the media as a way to build community strength, encourage dialogue, and push for social and political change.

Be sure to come and cast your vote for the audience award, which will be determined by secret ballot.
