Congratulations to this year's contest winners!
In June, we invited members and program participants (ages 6 - 19) from the Greater Philadelphia YMCA and the Philadelphia Juneteenth Family to join us in expressing their creativity. Participants could submit essays, poems, posters, videos, songs, rap, and other mediums that embodied Juneteenth and One People, One Cause, One Destiny.
