Project Paradigm launches June Challenge, “Firefighter Spotlight” and will award ten $1,000 prizes


By Lauren Backstrom

Project Paradigm, in partnership with the American Red Cross, runs The Paradigm Challenge; an annual competition developed to inspire youth to affect positive change in the world. Each month we see a new contest, with great prizes, that helps accomplish this goal. June’s contest, Firefighter Spotlight, has been kicked off and you are invited to participate!

Firefighters on are the front line when it comes to keeping us safe. This month, youth are being asked to use their creative talents to highlight what firefighters mean to them and their community with an original entry. Everyone else, you are being asked to vote for your favorite! Here’s how to enter:

CREATE. Draw, design, sculpt (or whatever else you can dream up) an original entry that represents a firefighter.

SHARE. Upload a photo of your original entry with a message about what firefighters mean to you and your community. Then share with your friends and family to rack up votes. #FirefighterSpotlight

WIN! The 10 entries with the most votes by the end of the month will receive cash prizes of up to $1000.

The ten entries with the most votes will receive cash prizes of up to $1,000.
