Philadelphia high school students are encouraged to show off their one-of-a-kind talents to win one-of-a-kind prizes through the 2024 I AM PHL contest presented by PhillyGoes2College, powered by the Philadelphia Education Fund (PEF), and in partnership with the Wawa Welcome America Festival and Vanguard. This contest aims to highlight and celebrate the aspirations of Philly high school students.

I AM PHL Contest details.

Students are encouraged to enter by submitting original work in the categories of investment, music, visual art, or spoken word performance. Judges at the forefront of Philadelphia’s creative and financial fields will review students’ work and one winner in each submission category will receive a $1,000 cash prize, the chance to be seen at the 2024 Wawa Welcome America Festival, and much more!
