DoSomething.org has partnered with Johnson & Johnson Youth Champions of Care to offer Smiles for Soldiers. Students between the ages of 13 – 18 have the opportunity to make and send thank-you cards for our hard-working military service members. For every two cards they make they will receive one entry to win a $5,000 scholarship, maximum of five entries.
Submit photos here of you and the cards you made or text them to SMILE at 38383 to enter no later than August 31, 2016. In early September, they will randomly pick a scholarship winner and announce it to the participants. Read the officials rules here.
As an added bonus, when your student participate Smiles for Soldiers, they will be automatically eligible to become one of Johnson & Johnson’s Youth Champions of Care. They are looking for 11 individuals who go above and beyond in caring for others. They will be selected based on creativity of cards, quantity of cards, and personal connection to the cause. The 11 Johnson & Johnson Youth Champions of Care will:
- Win a trip for two to a U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team match in the fall and be honored on the field as a Johnson & Johnson Youth Champion of Care, along with former U.S. Men’s National Team Forward, Landon Donovan. WOOHOO!
- Receive other amazing U.S. Soccer premiums!
