GENYOUth wrapped 2018 with a touchdown: announcing the winners of our first ever FLAG-In-Schools Contest. We shipped over 5,000 FLAG football kits to schools in the 2018/19 school year, increasing our reach by over 2.7 million students, bringing our total reach to 9.1 million students! To raise awareness and build excitement around our FLAG football expansion, we challenged educators to share amazing footage of their team on the field through Social Media.
Watch students celebrate their athletic skills, team spirit and creativity in their FLAG-In- School-Contest entries.
These 6 grand prize winners are getting special school visits from NFL players.
