What is the 'BE LOVE' contest?

The Just Be Love Project is happy to announce we are launching a contest to support youth advocacy through creative expression! The winner will get their story made into a short film. We were so inspired by our first youth advocacy project 'Stronger By This' that we have decided to start a tradition!
