BAYMN FEST Award Winners

Congratulations to all the award winners at the first annual BAYMN FEST -  a two-day interactive showcase of media produced by youth ages 12–24, hosted at the San Francisco Public Library, June 1-2.  SFFS is one of many partner organizations  of BAYMN that believe in the power of media as a means to engage youth voice, self-expression and empowerment and to inspire social change. We thank all the participants and volunteers who made this a grand debut!  We're also immensely proud of the number submissions (over 300!) and this year's award winners.  Below are the first prize winners for each age group, view full list of award winners at
