One Birthday Celebratation, On Us

How are you going to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the Junior Red Cross at your chapter? Will you have a party? A battle of the bands? A blood drive? Will you tell people about the mission of the American Red Cross? Tell us about your awesome plans!

This November is National Youth Involvement Month and the American Red Cross National Youth Council is getting ready to help you celebrate extraordinary achievements in youth volunteering. This year marks an important event on youth involvement history.

As a result, the National Youth Council is launching the 90th Anniversary Commemoration Award looking for exciting, service oriented, and youth empowering projects. The project plans will be aimed to host local events that will celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the Junior Red Cross.

There will be four winning projects chosen from nominations received by the National Youth Council. Each project will be awarded with $500 and the story will be shared with the entire organization via Cross Net, and the Messenger e-newsletter!

Submissions must be received no later than close of business on October 1, 2007. Winning units will be notified after the first of November.

For more information, please contact Darren Foster, Manager, Youth and Young Adult Programs and Services at (202) 303-8442, [email protected]; or Sandy Tesch, chair, National Youth Council at [email protected].
