A New Section Giving a Voice to Our Younger Generation
CALLING ALL YOUTH!
WIN $150 GRAND PRIZE!
Our Heritage Magazine is proud to announce that the new section
“PERSPECTIVE”, dedicated to giving our younger generation a voice,
will be launching in the upcoming June Printed Edition!
Sponsored by supporters of Our Heritage Magazine that include some of today’s most “forward thinking” and pro-active social, political and economic leaders, like Dr. Frank McCune and Dr. Charles W. Edwards, Jr., the purpose of this section is to provide a platform from which our youth’s voices can be heard. We hope to encourage our young people to share their thoughts on the issues and topics that matter most to them by giving them the opportunity to express themselves to the world through writing.
Thank you in advance for helping us to engage our young people in the societal discussions that matter most to them.
