World Hunger Leadership Challenge
World Hunger Leadership Challenge Accepting Student Entries for World Hunger Service Learning Projects
The Lead2Feed Challenge was established to encourage middle and high school students to hone their leadership skills by completing a service-learning project that solves hunger or another community need involving a public nonprofit organization.
Student teams from public, private, or charter middle or high schools are invited to enter. Each team must create and execute a service-learning project that raises awareness of hunger by establishing a goal that attempts to solve a local, statewide, or national hunger-related issue (i.e., helping an existing charity or creating a project whose aim is to address or solve a hunger-related problem locally or nationally); develop an action plan to achieve the goal; and demonstrate leadership. Each entry also must include a written summary or video overview of the project as well as quantifiable results.
First-, second-, and third-place prizes as well as honorable mentions in the amounts of $10,000, $5,000, $2,500, and $1,000, respectively, will be awarded. In addition, technology grants in the amount of $2,000 (first place), $1,000 (second place), and $1,000 (third place) will be awarded.
To be eligible, entrants must be located in the United States, the District of Columbia, or Guam and be full-time students in grades 6 to 12 at a public, private, or charter middle school or high school. Each team must comprise at least three students and a sponsoring teacher or adult adviser.
