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! 


Congratulations to Woolwich Central School, led by 12th grader Noa S., on their successful completion of their AdCap Project, “Seeds of Leadership!” Before the school year ended, they held a full day of mentoring and leadership led by their high school students to help support younger students. 63 5th grade students and 16 high school students participated in the program, across two different schools in the district. The older students led different leadership and physical activity sessions with elementary youth, providing a full day of leadership training and empowerment. Way to go, Noa and team!!!
