Formed in 1986, Generations United is the national membership organization focused solely on improving the lives of children, youth, and older people through intergenerational strategies, programs, and public policies.

Photo submissions should capture the power and beauty of intergenerational relationships in action, and convey the important roles that younger and older people play in each others’ lives. Winning photos are often candid shots of intergenerational relationships in action. Plan intergenerational activities where younger and older participants are taking photographs to gather entries.
