Kids Are Waiting: My Story Project

My Story Project

Young people who have experienced foster care are invited to participate in the Kids Are Waiting My Story Project.

This is an opportunity to speak out and encourage Congress to make important changes to the foster care system. Too many foster children are spending too many years in the system - and then aging out without a network of support.

Using photo or video, tell us what you are waiting for as a current or former foster youth, and then tell us why you think a change in how Congress pays for services for families in crisis, and youth in foster care, could help young people like you.

- Selected submissions will be featured on a Web site and in a film festival.

- Ten young people will be selected to fly to the film festival and work with other youth.

- Every submission will be entered into a drawing to receive an iPod Nano.

- Every person who submits one entry will also receive a My Story Project T-Shirt for participating.
