Youth Xchange 2015

15 YXC banner revise#510D11


As the State’s largest student video competition, Youth Xchange continues to grow. Last year’s record breaking 804 entries was quite an accomplishment, but even more inspiring was the ever increasing quality of the entries themselves. With the encouragement of dedicated teachers, students’ creativity and focus on issues of concern is simply amazing.
