The four winners (one boy and one girl in each category) will be featured in a Gap marketing campaign, a $1,000 Gap gift card, a $10,000 grant in their name from the Gap in Communities in Schools.

The winners will be determined through public voting starting on Monday. The winners will be announced at the end of July.
