The winner will receive a grant for the team's selected nonprofit.
This semester, 52 English Composition II students put their skills of persuasion to the test as they worked to earn a $2,000 grant for one of three area nonprofits – Mobile Meals, Akron Rotary Camp and RePlay for Kids. Taking part in the Pay it Forward program at The University of Akron, the students learned key research and writing techniques all while giving back to the community.
After viewing all of the advocacy projects, a panel of judges selected one video to represent each nonprofit. Now, the students need your help.
From April 21 through 5 p.m. on April 26, they invite you to vote for one of the three projects featured on this page. You may vote for your favorite project one time per day.
After the voting ends on the 26th, the video that receives the most votes will earn a $2,000 grant to fund the project detailed in the video. The other two nonprofits will earn $500 grants, and the students will help determine how those funds will be spent.
Voting is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
