Hello youth and community members –


We are having a free MUNI for youth (FMFY) art photo contest! Contest flyer and additional information attached to this email, and can also be found on our free MUNI for youth tumblr site:www.freemuniforyouth.tumblr.com . This is a great opportunity for your youth to share creative skills! A cool way for youth participants of your program to showcase their artistic talents! A project for your program or youth group!


Basically, the FMFY coalition  is coordinating a FMFY art contest for youth!!! Youth can submit any variation of photo or art work related to free MUNI for youth! Possible themes for artwork can include:

  • ·         youth organizing and youth taking action to make this happen,
  • ·         How this program has benefited our families and friends
  • ·         We want the free MUNI for youth pilot program to be permanent!
  • ·         The environmental benefits of the program
  • ·         Anything else related to free MUNI for youth


There are TWO categories:

1.       PHOTO – submit a photo of yourself or your friends related to the MUNI system, showing how the free MUNI for youth pass has helped you access a museum, library, school, after school job, youth program, school activity, etc. Examples: pictures of you and your friends at a bus stop, a city landmark, a photo collage, etc… Please include a caption explaining where you are going, what MUNI lines you took to get there, and how the pilot program help make it possible
