Photography & Community Service Project Competition Past Winners


In spring of 2017, the Florida League of Cities sponsored two new Youth Council Competitions:

1) A photography contest in which we encouraged youth council members to take a picture of an aspect of your city that you love. 

2) A contest showcasing a youth council community service or volunteer project for a specific, single, citywide effort to successfully address a local need.

The winners of the competitions have been announced. Congratulations to the winning cities!
