2017 has been a growth year for Youth Radio’s news team.

We published hundreds of stories by youth around the country, including over 100 videos, and five interactives. We expanded our national outlets to include Teen Vogue, The New York Times, and The California Sunday Magazine. Our NPR story about Noel Anaya’s journey through the foster care system won the Radio Impact Award at the prestigious Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Competition.

We’ve looked back over our favorite commentaries and features of 2017. Here’s a list of some of our favorites.
