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 love seeing our AdCap students in the news! Abby attended our Chicago SAP Social Innovation Series last fall along with peers from her school. Although she didn’t win a grant that day, the event inspired Abby to apply for a grant through the AdCap website. Using the Project Designer at, Abby submitted a NEW idea to the AdCap team, which earned her a grant and recognition in her local paper! You can read the article about Abby’s Project, “Don’t Be Insane, Protect Your Brain!” here.

Abby is a great example of how anyone can apply for and win an AdCap grant online through our Project Designer, regardless of whether they attended an in-person event.

Abby is also an active member of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. She and her team are developing important leadership and workforce ready skills through their participation in FCCLA and AdCap. AdVenture Capital is a proud partner of FCCLA - to learn more, check out more information about FCCLA on their website.

Way to go Abby!
