Sandra Lee, ConAgra Foods Foundation Join Forces for Child Hunger
Beginning Nov. 18, 2009, individuals may submit nominations at ChampionsAgainstChildHunger.org. Contest entries require a short essay focusing on why the nominee is a Champion Against Child Hunger, recognizing his or her efforts to help end child hunger in his or her community or about how the nominee personally overcame child hunger. Prizes will be awarded to the top five nominees and a grand prize winner, to be chosen by visitors who will vote online. ConAgra Foods Foundation has committed an incremental donation of up to $100,000 to Share Our Strength based on the number of entries to the contest and votes cast to select the Champion.
Nominations will be accepted through Jan. 22, 2010. Applicants can submit a short essay, nomination information, and photo and will have the opportunity to either nominate themselves or nominate another individual deserving recognition. Nominees and others may also submit a video telling their story at www.YouTube.com/ConAgraFoundation. The videos are optional and not required for contest nominations.
The grand prize winner will be announced on March 25, 2010.
