Ethnic Media Services announce the winners of an Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs (OCEIA) – sponsored city-wide contest for 14-21 year-olds on “Why My Family Counts” and introduces four of the 100-plus contestants.

Don’t leave us out of federally funded programs for the next decade.
