Great Futures Challenge!

September 2nd, 2014

Boys & Girls Clubs of America have sounded the alarm – at 3 pm when school is out our Clubs are in. Help Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids kickoff the start to a great school year where hundreds of GREAT FUTURES will start in our Clubs.

On September 2nd, we will be launching a #greatfutures social media campaign. The goal? To have as many people as possible wear a BGCGRYC shirt and post the picture with the hashtag #greatfutures.

To help drive this campaign, we will be hosting an internal competition in the organization. The team with the most people wearing their shirt color on September 2nd will win a $250 dinner out with their Club team. The dinner can be redeemed anytime between September 30th and May 31st. To redeem the dinner the winning team can select a day where they cash in their night out and close their individual Club early.

Teams and their corresponding team color are listed below:

Team Blue: Admin, Performing Arts & Camp staff
Team Orange: Paul I. Phillips staff
Team Purple:  Seidman staff
Team Green: Steil staff

Points breakdown listed below:

1 point will be awarded to each individual that takes a photo wearing or with a BGCGRYC Club shirt and posts the picture to social media with the #greatfutures.

To help push this campaign we will award the following bonus points:

Public School Employees (i.e. teachers, KSSN workers, Principals, Counselors, Secretaries): 1 bonus point
College or University Employees: 1 bonus point
