MyImpact Challenge is coming to Utah!
This contest is a wonderful match with your community engagement done through your involvement with Youthlinc. Whether you’re done Service Year or have applied for the Young Humanitarian Award, this is a great complement to what you are doing.
MyImpact Challenge is the Bill of Rights Institute’s national civic engagement contest. They’re awarding $40,000 in prizes for students and teachers—including a $10,000 grand prize for the top student project!
Through an exciting collaboration with the Utah Civic Learning Collaborative (UCLC), Utah Valley University’s Center for Civic Thought and Leadership, and Youthlinc, Utah will get its own MyImpact Challenge contest and civics fair!
When: June 14, 2023 (Flag Day) 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Where: at UVU. Details here
What: Utah students will showcase their work and win more than $5,000 in prizes. Educators and parents (and students) can enjoy workshops designed to grow youth impact on a local, state, national, and global scale.
Who: Utah students aged 13-18 years old (public, private, home, or charter school students welcome!)
To enter, a student must undertake a service project in their community and submit:
