Do you know a teenage girl who is having an elaborate quinceanera, sweet 16, bat mitzvah or another age coming-of-age ritual? We are looking for a few teenagers who are celebrating coming-of-age events involving different cultures.

Do you know a young girl who has an interesting story and plans to have an elaborate or unique party?
 
One of our videojournalists plans to follow each girl for a few weeks during the party-prep process. A videographer would also be there to capture the big day.  

We are creating a video documentary about what it means for teens to grow up on Long Island and leave adulthood behind as they transition from their teenage years.
