WHO: You and your classmates form a team.
WHAT: The Challenge! The team members are tasked to identify the NEED (global, national, and local/community), the WHY, design a service project to impact the community, and present to a select panel of community members. The goal is to receive funding ($200.00) to execute the proposed service project for the community. Review and understand additional Challenge dates and expectations.
WHERE: Teams are being challenged to identify a specific need in their local community and isolate a specific area to provide a service project for the betterment of the community. The service project must be conducted locally and is not intended to support an international community.
WHEN: First come first serve!
Submit your team proposal as soon as possible to ensure funding is still available to you.
In the proposal the timeframe of the project should be outlined. It is the students responsibility to ensure it is completed by the end of the school year and a presentation is scheduled with the Magnified Giving staff to share the impact report.
HOW: The planning process should include identification of WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, HOW, and COST of the project and the IMPACT! The accomplishment of each requirement will result in financial support of $200.00 for the team to execute their project. Review and understand additional Challenge dates and expectations.
WHY: This project is designed to encourage students to “think outside of the box” to propose useful and impactful solutions for today’s social challenges. We believe our youth CAN and WILL change the world!
