Event description

Description

$40,000 in Total Prizing Up for Grabs - and You’re Invited!Do you believe youth can help lead change in their school communities? We do!

GENYOUth and American Beverage Association are teaming up to empower students to lead change in their schools and communities. Students will work in school teams alongside their school staff and/or family members to design and pitch their BIG ideas on how to make informed choices about how and what to balance in their lives for the chance to win funding to bring their ideas to life.

Students do NOT need to come up with a full project idea prior to attending the event (in fact, it's not recommended due to the nature of the workshop), but we do recommend that groups start to think about current health/wellness challenges that exist in their school currently.



About the Find Your Balance Challenge

  • Develop leadership and social entrepreneurship skills
  • Be empowered to develop and lead positive change in their school communities
  • Compete together to win up to $1,000 for their school to implement their ideas

Participation is FREE for schools but space is limited! Schools may bring a group of up to 5 students per school with 1 accompanying educator. When registering, you do not need to know the names of your students already - simply register yourself as the educator and we will collect the information closer to the event.

Breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided. We will reimburse for the cost of one substitute teacher for each school on the day of the event, as well as up to $100 for transportation per group.
