Imagine Englewood If essay competion: Why Englewood needs a youth center

Today recieved this e-mail about an essay contest sponsored by Imagine Englewood If. Below is the text of that email and an entry form for those Englewood residents who are interested in being part of this contest. The above quote is from someone who is involved in this contest:
Jamal is a 15-year old student at Paul Robeson High School in Englewood. His words were not coached. They came from the heart of a young man who lives at the epicenter of the violence that has taken a foothold in his community. In fact, Jamal was the inspiration for the "Pocket Change 4 Youth" Campaign for a Youth & Family Community Center. He now serves as Youth Co-Chairperson of the “Pocket Change 4 Youth Essay Contest”.

Kinda’ busy? We understand. That’s why we have extended the contest to March 31st. Please take a moment to sponsor someone you know, or consider entering the competition yourself. In these turbulent times, it is one way to signal your support to the children of Englewood who strive for peace in their community. Remember, the essay theme is, "Why Englewood Needs a Youth Center" and the contest is open to anyone who lives, attends school, or works in Englewood. Attached you will find the Essay Contest Entry Form (flyer on front, entry form on back). It includes vital information about the competition to help guide participants through the process.
Awards will be presented on April 7th at “Open Mic Nite”, a teen summit and teen cafĂ©, which marks the beginning of a direct action campaign to rally support for the center. All ages are welcome. For more information, contact Imagine Englewood if at 773.488.6704, fax: 773.488.6705; email: jhill705 [@]; website:
