Nominate a child for Kids Who Give!

This is a great opportunity for any kids you may know to shine!
If your child or a child you know, makes a difference in the community, please share this.
I am going to encourage my son Luke to enter. His Outreach program is almost a year old and he has done very with helping with our local food bank.




Here is the Full Project information

GOOD THINGS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES

Don't underestimate the awesomeness of a kid. Farm Rich certainly doesn't. This month Farm Rich kicks off the third annual Kids Who Give contest, which celebrates young people making a positive impact in the world. To enter or learn more, visit www.kidswhogive.com.

Open to youth aged 7-17 who reside in the U.S., the contest awards kids giving back to their communities through volunteer work. For 2012, Farm Rich will recognize quarterly winners as well as an annual grand-prize winner who will receive $10,000 for the charity of his or her choice.

A first-, second-, and third-place winner will be chosen each quarter to receive donations of $3,500, $1,500 and $1,000, respectively, for their chosen charities. Honorable mentions each quarter get a “Pat on the Back” gift card of $250. The grand-prize winner, chosen through a public online vote next January, will receive a gift of $10,000 to donate to a selected charity or charities. 

To enter, kids should go to www.kidswhogive.com and submit a 250- to 500-word essay explaining their volunteer work and how it has helped others. Entrants are also encouraged to include a creative representation of their story along with their entries. Contest rules, details and deadlines are included on the website.

Join the Kids Who Give conversations on Facebook or follow @kidswhogive on Twitter for contest updates. Video entries can also be viewed on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/farmrichkidswhogive.

“It's such an honor to recognize and celebrate these amazing kids, and we’re humbled to help them share their stories and experiences," says Jennifer Meetz, Director of Marketing for Farm Rich. "Our Kids Who Give entrants are an inspiration to us all."
