Youth Perspectives Contest
The Results Are In!
KQED recently held a Youth Perspectives Contest and asked young people to send us their thoughts on two themes: Coming Out and Friday Night. The submissions we received were fresh, compelling, and original. Below is a sampling of entries that reflects the best in both quality and thoughtfulness for the Friday Night theme. We encourage you to listen, comment, and enjoy.
Congratulations to Fabio Passalacqua whose commentary, "Skating Into Friday Night" is the grand prize winner for our second theme.
On Fridays, Fabio Passalacqua explores on his skateboard -- gaining appreciation for his town and the people in it.
For Joshua Herman, Friday nights are all about searching for the elusive Isle of Awesome.
Zach Knight gets excited about the weekend, just like any other teen. But when Friday night comes, he realizes just how unique he is.
Youth Radio's Ella Ross and Nick Bellizzi lead very different lives, including their Friday nights. But as it turns out--they're both chasing the same thing.
