Today, we’re unveiling the winners of our #WholeKidsBiz sweepstakes! At Whole Kid Foundation, we’re dedicated to helping kids eat better – and enjoy it. More often than not, the kids are the ones inspiring us.
Nearly 8 out of 10 students in grades 5-12 say they want to be their own boss someday. Through our work, we’ve had the opportunity to meet some amazing young thought-leaders who are transforming how kids eat in their schools and communities. We thought it was about time to celebrate their accomplishments and learn how we can help support them!
From March 18 through April 17, we asked students ages 11-18 to share how their business or entrepreneurial school program was helping to change the way kids eat through gardening, plant-forward cooking, and nutrition education – and they did not disappoint!
We’ve selected eight winners randomly from the pool of qualifying entries, who will receive cash prizes to support their business. Watch their video entries to learn more about their ventures, the unique challenges they face and their tips for success.
Thank you to everyone who entered the #WholeKidsBiz sweepstakes! This giveaway was the first step in determining interest and support needed to help student entrepreneurs and school business programs and will help to guide a future pilot grant program.
