What is a Leadership Grant?

Consider ways that you can you make a difference.

The purpose of a leadership grant is to inspire and enable students to be life-ready leaders by using the grant to make a difference within their circle of influence. A leadership grant will be awarded by FranklinCovey to students who are selected as winners in this year’s student speech contest. As participants work to develop a speech, they should consider what they would do with the leadership grant if awarded the prize and submit their plans for its use during the entry-form process. The decision is up to the student, but here are a few suggestions to make a difference as a leader:

• Identify and fix a problem that exists at school. • Donate the money to a charitable contribution. • Organize a service project in the community. • Purchase personal school supplies. • Help a class member or family in need. • Contribute to a college fund.

The Judging Process

Grand prize winners will be selected by a panel at FranklinCovey Education and the International Student LEAD Team using a judging rubric with three criteria: 1) message 2) tone and 3) quality of video. Students will receive a $500 Leadership Grant for EACH winning video they submit. REMINDER: You can enter more than one video as long as each video is for a different High School Course Lesson. The more entries you submit, the better your chance of winning a Leadership Grant. NOTE: All winning videos will be featured in the new High School Digital Course lessons.
