Service Learning Projects Are Due May 7th!

The deadline to submit a CATCH My Breath Service Learning Projects is almost here! We are excited to see all of the fantastic projects that students in grades 6-12 across the country have created in this second year of the scholarship competition. Through four project tracks (fundraise, advocate, communicate, educate) students are invited to raise their voice against the youth vaping epidemic and engage with their communities. Three winning projects are eligible for a purse of $5,000 in scholarships. Submissions are due May 7th at 7:00pm CT. Click here for more details. 

If you haven’t started your project yet or have questions about your project, don’t worry! We are hosting a live informational webinar on April 14th at 2:00pm CT / 3:00pm ET. 

During the session we will cover the basics of the projects and submission process. One of the 2020 winners, Matthew Miller, will speak about his experience and provide tips to make your project a success.
