This season, we’ve made a special effort to encourage you to get inspired by some of the stories you’ve seen on our show and make an impact in your community.
And if you’ve got involved in something because of something you saw on Channel One, or if you’ve taken action on a particular issue, because, you know, that’s just how you roll, we wanted to share an opportunity for you to be recognized for what you’ve done.
The Lead360 Challenge is designed to recognize the great work kids do and inspire others to put their ideas into action. Last year, 900,000 people competed with their involvement in 3,674 projects. so if you’re between 5 and 25, or a part of of a school project, clubs and other youth organizations doing great things in your community, submit your “big idea” or project for a chance to be recognized locally — and to compete nationally.
To get started, upload your projects (including pictures and videos!) to the Lead360 website. The challenge is broken down into categories including Education, Environment, Community, Hunger, Elder, Youth, Health, Animal and Peace, so there are plenty of places to shine.
The deadline? Friday, April 25 at 11:59 p.m. (because every minute counts!)
Have you entered? Tell us about your project in the comments!
