BRI Looks To Make An ‘Impact’ In Utah
The next big summer blockbuster might occur in Utah, as the Bill of Rights Institute is partnering with multiple organizations to bring its MyImpact Challenge to the state this June.
BRI is collaborating with Utah Valley University’s Center for Civic Thought and Leadership, the Utah Civic Learning Collaborative, and the Utah-based nonprofit Youthlinc. BRI and these groups will also host a civics fair for students on June 14, 2023, at Utah Valley University.
MyImpact Challenge is BRI’s national civic engagement contest encouraging students to develop constitutionally-principled service projects. BRI will award up to $40,000 in prizes as part of the challenge, including a $10,000 grand prize. The challenge is available to all students who want to learn more about civic engagement.
The 2022 MyImpact Challenge winner was Hamid Torabzadeh, a student from Long Beach Polytechnic High School in California who is currently in his first year at Brown University. Torabzadeh partnered with his local American Red Cross to educate and train his classmates in disaster preparation, response, and recovery.
The Utah Civic Learning Collaborative will host an online kickoff event for MyImpact Challenge on Tuesday, March 7. Adam Brickley, BRI’s Civic Engagement Projects Manager, will share more information on the challenge and answer any questions.
