Get creative, win recognition and maybe even help find the cure

This is a contest held by Staples for kids 12 to 24. They are looking for innovative programs started by kids to help the social good. Perhaps there's an HPS or CHS kid or sibling out there who might be able to come up with a project to both help generate awareness/raise money and perhaps that would be a project that could be entered into this contest. It would be a huge thing to have on your college scholarship resume.

Here's the info:
