As Youth Magazine completed one year and was rebranded to Empower, we held a Flash Fiction contest and an Illustration Contest to celebrate this feat. We were pleased to receive an overwhelming amount of submissions and we are excited to announce you the two winning illustrations in the Illustration Contest: Richard Stephenson and Du Kha Han. As for the Flash Fiction Contest, we weren't able to declare any winners, because none of the submissions met the guidelines nor were upto the standard we were looking for. We'd like to thank all participants who took the time to write these stories and we extend our heartiest congratulations to the winners!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
ON THE MAGAZINE
"I was curious to know about Youth Magazine when I first came across their page. It was something that showcased the essence of strong youth. I always felt about doing my part as a young global citizen, and now after reading and contributing to this magazine, I have never felt this empowered and heard as a youth."
