The Lift a Life Foundation is accepting applications for the Lead2Feed World Hunger Leadership Challenge. This challenge encourages middle and high school students to develop leadership skills by starting a service-learning project that addresses hunger.
Each team must create and execute a service-learning project that attempts to solve a local, statewide, or national hunger-related issue; develop an action plan to achieve the goal; and demonstrate leadership. Each entry must include a written summary or video overview of the project and quantifiable results (i.e., number of meals served, cans collected, hours of service donated, Facebook “likes,” or families served from an urban garden).
To be eligible, entrants must be located in one of the fifty United States, the District of Columbia, or Guam; be a full-time student in grades 6-12 at a public, private, or charter middle school or high school; and be between the ages of 11 to 18 years old. Each team must comprise at least three students and a sponsoring teacher or adult adviser. Youth groups, such as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Boys & Girls Clubs are also eligible to apply.
