The March theme of the We Are Main Street campaign is YOUTH! Please be sure to join us in this month-long celebration by sharing the stories and initiatives of the young people who are making a difference in your downtown using #WeAreMainStreet.

As part of the celebration, we will be hosting two opportunities for local programs during the month:

Draw Your Main Street! (Open to ages 0-11)
Bust out the crayons and markers! Draw a picture of what your Main Street looks like for a chance to be featured on our blog! During the month of March, share your youths' drawings on social media using #WeAreMainStreet, or email them to mainstreetnews@savingplaces.org.

What Does Main Street Mean to You? (Open to ages 12-18)
Home. Shopping with friends. The heartbeat of the community. Whatever it is, we want to know: what does Main Street mean to you? Let us know in 250-500 words for a chance to be published on our blog and shared on our social media channels! Please submit essays to mainstreetnews@savingplaces.org, subject line “What Main Street Means to Me.” 

Update: Given the pandemic, both opportunities will continue to be available until further notice!
