Lead2feed World Hunger Leadership Challenge
The Challenge, administered by the USA TODAY Charitable Foundation and the Lift a Life Foundation, with support from the Yum Foundation, encourages middle and high school students to develop leadership skills by starting a service-learning project that addresses hunger. Based on the book, Taking People with You, teams of students from public, private, and charter middle schools and high schools are required to work in teams as a way of learning how to lead. Each team must create and execute a service-learning project that attempts to solve a local, statewide, or national hunger-related issue. In addition, they must develop and 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. Eligible students must be located in one of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, or Guam. They must be a full-time student in grades 7-12 at a public, private, or charter middle or high school and be between the ages of 13 and 18. Each team must comprise at least three students and a sponsoring teacher or adult advisor. Prizes are $1,000 for third place, $5,000 for second place, and $25,000 for first place.
