After receiving many inspiring and entertaining submissions, we are excited to announce the winners of our TFT Summer Contest! Our talented teens harnessed their feelings on authentic travel and sent in their creative compilations of what it means to be a traveler- not a tourist!
Dive into the creativity of our students below, and experience the meaning of authentic travel through the eyes of our travelers!

TFT Spring Contest Winner | Lulu V.

TFT is proud to present, our creative winning submission: “The Prize Winner” by the very talented Lulu Venokur!

Lulu’s artistic vision and inspiring optimism captured our hearts and showed a truly deep appreciation for our mission of authentic travel.

We can’t wait to see Lulu’s award winning screenplay adapted for the big screen one day but we’re even more excited to have her travel with us this summer! We only wish Donut and Pip could come too!

TFT Spring Contest Second Place Winner | Joana M.

Our runner up, Joana, blew us away with her video submission which expertly combined her nostalgia for the past with her hopes for the future.

The way she forged her chosen essay prompt with a beautiful visual representation of her childhood will have you itching to live each day to the fullest as a traveler.

Excellent work, Joana!

TFT Spring Contest Third Place Winner | Adi N.

Our third place winner is Adi Newman’s fun and fast paced TikTok that’s jam-packed with pictures from his own adventures and expert tips for teen travelers.

We recognized a few of our favorite locations on our Costa Rica Wildlife Rescue & Service trip which Adi joined us on last summer. We love to see our travelers share the places they’ve gone and the valuable things they learned with the world!

Great job, Adi!
