We wanted to highlight just one way students make a difference. More than that, we wanted their story to IMPACT others!
Individuals or groups may submit their work here. We have a guaranteed minimum $250 prize for the winner’s cause. However, we will also be accepting donations here from readers for the fund-raising efforts/causes online to help further the impact. Donations will be tracked/accepted online. Deadline for submission is 2/15/19. Winner will be announced in the March issue of Community Spirit Magazine.
The contest will look at 3 main areas:
1 – IMPACT to the recipient(s). How will/did your efforts directly IMPACT the targeted recipients? What was the need? What did you (your group) plan/do to help?
2 – IMPACT to the community. How will/did your efforts IMPACT the community? This can entail many sides. Can/did your efforts touch a community? Can/did they motivate your community to come alongside of you? Could others use your idea or be challenged by the idea to motivate more people to action?
3 – IMPACT to you. How will/did your effort IMPACT you? What will/did your involvement teach/instill/inspire in you?
This contest isn’t a numbers game, although we fully support mass efforts. Those coming together to help one family are every bit as worthy as those helping a city block. We all know Jesus taught us that the one matters. Jesus said, “…truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine…” (Matthew 18:14.) So, Go. Do. Be. Wherever God might lead you. And, tell us about it! Students, we are in awe of your hearts, your ability to mobilize, and your desire to make an #IMPACT4Christ.
The winner will get $250 FOR YOUR CAUSE + A FREE OIL CHANGE from Christian Brothers Automotive!
