Video Competition

Our annual high school video competition engages local youth in learning about the needs in their community and how Livingston County United Way responds with lasting, sustainable solutions. Each year, area students dig deep into the work of United Way and find creative ways to capture the collaborative nature of what we do and invite viewers to get involved. One winner is selected by a panel of local media and human resource professionals.

Submissions due: April 7, 2017
