Chicago Youth of the Year Boys and Girls Clubs of Chicago 2014

Chicago Youth of the Year Event


Each year, individual clubs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago (BGCC) nominate one exemplary member to compete for the title of BGCC’s Youth of the Year. The Award is considered the Nonprofit organization’s highest local honor; rewarding leadership, service, and academic standing. Eight candidates competed for this year’s title. Each of them shared amazing stories about how the organization has changed their lives. We filmed the event, which had over 1,000 people in attendance at Navy Pier in Chicago. After the event, we edited the highlight video online and delivered 100 DVDs to donors; some of which had custom thank you’s from each of the candidates.

This is our second year following the Youth of the Year candidates for the Chicago nonprofit as they prepare for the culminating event at Navy Pier in Chicago. Our crew filmed at three of their clubs and interviewed those club’s candidates. We also filmed two preparation meetings, a final dress rehearsal, and multiple interviews with the remaining candidates and some of the staff. In all, it was five days of field production.

We produced two videos related to this event. The first video we produced showed how the candidates prepared for competition. That video was shown at the event. The second video (shown above) is a recap of the Youth of the Year Award Event, which took place at Chicago’s Navy Pier.

We had two of our DSLR video cameras at the event to capture speeches and various b-roll. The finished produced piece included soundbites from many of the candidates, board members, and Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
