The South Side Youth Fest invites Chicago teens to make and share original stories they want to tell. Share your vision for the world or an issue you care about. Tell us something about your life or your culture. There’s no limit to what you can share as long as it’s true to you and what you have to say.
Friends and family will have the chance to watch your stories on our website and vote for their favorites. During the fest watch party we’ll all celebrate the most watched stories and announce fan favorites for a chance to win a new laptop.
- The submission period closed on March 8, 2022.
- Voting ended on March 21, 2022, but you can still watch all the entries here: CourtTheatre.org/Vote

Any teen ages 13-19 who currently lives on Chicago’s South Side and any teen who is currently enrolled in a South Side school.
