#OttYouth2017 is a social media campaign that aims to showcase youth-friendly faces, spaces, and accomplishments that have contributed significantly to the success of our capital city. The campaign is run by the Ottawa Youth Engagement Committee (OYEC), which aims to encourage youth engagement and to amplify youth voice and representation at the City. Youth will submit a photo and short story (200 words). 150 stories will be chosen and displayed throughout the year. The top stories that captivate our audience will receive a prize at the end of the campaign.


Faces: Tell us about yourself, similar to Humans of New York, express yourself in any way you would like.
Spaces: Let us know of any youth friendly spaces that contribute significantly in the success of our city. In what you share, relate how you have benefited from the youth friendly space.
Accomplishments: Share an accomplishment or achievement that you have experienced! This can be as simple as starting an initiative, winning an award, involvement in your community, etc.
