Share your volunteer story- win prizes

Share your volunteer story, inspire others, and become eligible to win scholarships and prizes.  Submit your story here (500-1500 words) along with a picture or video by 10/17/13.  Then, share your entry on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube and encourage your family and friends to vote!  We will also help you get votes and promote your story.   Those with the most votes nationally will win scholarships while 12 Apple® iPad Mini® tablet computers will be randomly awarded. 

In addition, the Alfred State story that gets the most votes (and doesn’t win a national award) will receive an Apple® iPad Mini® tablet.  This contest is part of National Student Day- a day sponsored by college stores that recognize and encourage social responsibility among the college students they serve.

Submissions will count for Pioneer Cup credit.
