My Neighborhood, My Chicago:

A Big Shoulders Fund Media Project

Share Your Photo Story

This April the Big Shoulders Fund is hosting a "photo frenzy" as students from across the city capture and share images that represent the many vibrant neighborhoods that are home to Big Shoulders schools. As we launch the “My Neighborhood, My Chicago” project, we ask you to join in and tell the story of your neighborhood in photos.

Ready to Share Your Neighborhood Story?

Capture: Using a camera or a mobile device take photos around your neighborhood of the people, places and things that tell the story of your part of the city!

Label: Save your photo and label it with the name of your school, grade, and your name. Example: StTherese_3_KristinZiemke

Complete: Fill out a the Google Form below and attach your photo. You can upload your photo via any mobile device or computer.

Submit: Submit the form with your attached photo by April 24, 2018.

The school with the most submissions will receive a school-wide pizza party!!

Big Shoulders will review all submissions and up to 25 photos will be identified as finalists to be reviewed by a panel of distinguished Chicagoans.

A select number of photos will be featured at the JCB Humanitarian Award Dinner on May 24th.
