Collective Impact’s Voice of Youth Presents:
The 2022 Essay Contest

The mission of the Voice of Youth Essay Contest is to facilitate the development of critical thinking and constructive self-expression among youth and young adults. This year, we are pleased to announce we are hosting two essay contests:

Youth who are between 8 and 18 are eligible to enter an essay on "The Baby Billionaire Guide To Investing."

Those who are between the ages of 18 and 28 are eligible to enter an essay on "From Little Acorns Grow: Main Street Millionaires."
18 year olds have the choice of participating in either contest.
Participants in both contests must enter through a Collective Impact Collaborating Organization or prior CLIMB Programming participation. The list of collaborators is at the bottom of this page.
