What does Year Up mean to you? To celebrate our 15th anniversary, our students and alumni across the country set out to answer this question in short videos. Top videos from each city are posted here, and we invited you to watch them and vote for your favorite to be the winner.

Polls are now closed, and we will announce finalists on September 2.

Three finalists will attend the Opportunity Gala in New York, where their videos will be shown. One grand prize winner, to be selected at the gala, will be awarded a $25,000 investment fund and a chance to work with a professional filmmaker on a new promotional video.
