International [YOU] Day online contest


August 12th is International Youth Day, and YEN is celebrating with a contest to highlight the accomplishments of the youth in our network! From now until August 12th, each day we will feature a different young person on the website.

To enter, all you have to do is go to our forum and tell us what was your greatest accomplishment this year. You can enter once per day. Each day we’ll pick one of the entries to feature on our home page, and on International Youth Day, we will do a random draw of all the featured youth and the winner will get a prize package, including a smart phone!
