Our Challenge Partners are investing in student ideas and empowering young people to help them solve real problems their companies — and our world — are facing. This is one AWESOME opportunity... don't let it slip by!

On October 30, 96 students from around Missouri came together for an innovation day to tackle challenges around increasing access to or participation in USDA meal programs. Teams worked with mentors including representatives from No Kid Hungry Missouri and Midwest Dairy to develop solutions through rapid prototyping and design thinking exercises. They pitched their ideas to a panel of judges at the end of the day - with the chance to walk away with a $1,000 grant to bring their big idea to life.

Check out this photo gallery of the winners, who each received $1000 from No Kid Hungry MO to bring their big ideas to life this school year! 


We’re thrilled to announce that once again, our partners at SAP are supporting our brave entrepreneurs by offering three (3) scholarships of up to $10,000 to students in GENYOUth programs! Last year, SAP and GENYOUth launched the SAP Bill McDermott Scholarship, which recognizes young social entrepreneurs who have demonstrated an immense work ethic, bravery and determination in achieving their goals and creating their own journey towards success.

$25,000 in total scholarship funds are available this year to three intrepid juniors and seniors, and applications are now open! To learn more or to submit an application, click here to check out eligibility requirements. Applications are due November 1.
