Your SADD chapter is working hard to make a difference. Wouldn’t it be great to earn some money at the same time? There are always contests available that your chapter can enter and have a chance to win prizes that include thousands of dollars! See below for the possibilities, and remember – your chance of winning is usually a lot better than you think!
MADD National Teen Influencer Group – Deadline July 18, 2014
MADD is looking for outstanding teens to take a stand on underage drinking and work with MADD National staff to create initiatives to empower teens not to drink before 21 and to never ride with someone who’s been drinking. If you’ll be a high school student in the fall between the ages of 13-18, you’re eligible. To apply, visit madd.org/teeninfluencergroup.
Besides contests, there are always grants available for your chapter to apply for to help fund your efforts. Usually, these grants require you to hold activities around a particular topic. Here are a couple of good places to research possible grants for your chapter:
Each year, YSA gives away $1 million in grants to youth groups like SADD chapters who take on service projects. There are a wide variety of grants with deadlines throughout the year, so check back frequently to see what’s new. Enter “SADD” in the “Partner Code” field of the application, and you’ll get a priority review!
