2019 Lead2Feed First Round Challenge Winners Are
This year’s five grand prize recipient teams are:
- Wantagh Middle School, “EsSCENTial Melts” team, Wantagh, NY—To increase awareness of mental health issues faced by their peers, sixth grade students melted crayons into aromatherapy candles, both raising funds and providing aromatherapy for students to have a restorative break. “I loved witnessing the students’ transformation in attitude and thinking,” teacher Patti Andreolas shared. “When given the opportunity to be leaders, they surprised me in more ways than I could imagine.”
- Mohave High School, FCCLA ECE Chapter, Bullhead City, AZ—Students organized and implemented a campaign to collect over 1,000 cans of soup for the WOW Mobile Food Pantry. They led preschool students and families through an understanding of sharing and giving while hosting a “Souper Bowl” challenge. “As an early childhood educator, I was inspired by the students’ desire to truly teach young children the importance of giving to others,” teacher Michelle Leyendecker said.
- The Altamont School, “Knights for the World” team, Birmingham, AL—Eight 6th grade students focused on ending homelessness in their community, working with the Firehouse Shelter to build awareness and raise funds. Their objective was to fill a small bus with donations, and they exceeded their goal. “This leadership program is the easiest, most versatile and flexible one I’ve ever encountered,” teacher Katherine Berdy shared. “The students experienced deep, rich learning about a social issue that is closer to them than originally thought.”
- Odessa High School FBLA, Odessa, WA—This team of leaders implemented a campaign to replace all of their town hall’s windows, providing senior citizens in their community a safe place to gather, socialize and stay active. Students exceeded their goal by hosting a variety of events and seeking “window sponsors.” “The most valuable lessons learned by students were to be fearless leaders, set big goals and be confident communicators,” teacher Terri King said.
- Eisenhower High School, “Ike Ignition Mentors” team, Lawton, OK—Working with the Family Promise organization, student mentors set a goal of raising $10,000 to provide resources for peer students who are experiencing homelessness. “Students are starving for a way to put their education to practical use and benefit others,” teacher Michelle Churchwell shared. She is excited and grateful to give her students the opportunity to become active leaders in their community.
This year, Lead2Feed also presented a special “All in Senior Stars” award to the Mercy Academy Senior Class in Louisville, KY.
- Mercy Academy, Louisville, KY— As part of their Senior Capstone curriculum, Mercy Academy seniors divided into six teams to address a variety of issues across their community, including immigration, poverty, abuse and inclusion. Each of these six teams received a $500 charitable grant in recognition of the widespread change they drove in their community. “This class learned they are capable of change and have demonstrated how they will impact their community and the world,” shared educators Kari Sims and Brandon Lewis.
