Recently, No Kid Hungry and WeAreTeachers challenged teens to document childhood hunger in the US through their own original essays and photographs.
The response was powerful. Students in grades 7–12 across the country wrote stories, conducted interviews, and took photographs to share this important issue—the more than 16 million kids in the United States who live in households that struggle to put food on the table.
A selection committee composed of teachers, and staff members from No Kid Hungry and WeAreTeachers carefully reviewed each entry and hand-selected the winners. Three grand-prize winners (one in each category) will each receive a $500 gift card and a $200 prize for his or her school. Runners-up will each receive a $200 gift card and a $100 donation to his or her school. Congratulations to all our winners and their schools!
