Light The Night Registration Week
Light The Night Registration Week starts today! Now through August 11th any team members or captains registered by the end of the week will be entered in a raffle for one of five $25 Amazon.com gift cards. The Team Captains of the four largest teams will each receive a $100 gift card, and all Team Captains will all be entered in a drawing for a $25 American Express gift card.
All incentives are compliments of Foundation Beyond Belief - check their page of incentives for more. If you don't have a team yet, join one at or start your own by following this guide. Most of the student teams from last year have been imported but lack a team captain. Let us know if you wish reinstate one of those teams rather than making one from scratch or if you have any other questions about the Light The Night Walk. Visit our Light The Night page for more information.
President's Interfaith Challenge
The national Secular Student Alliance highly encourages both interfaith and community service on campus and so this opportunity is perfect for secular students! Mark September 23-24, 2013 as the dates for The Third Annual President’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge National Gathering. The event will take place at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. The gathering will be an opportunity for students, staff, and administrators to share experiences, learn from experts, and meet administration officials who share a commitment to community service with an interfaith engagement component.
Registration and more details can be found here. You might also want to look at the invitation. You can also fill out the registration form and email it to EDPartners@ED.gov. Keep in mind that the challenge only applies to college students and only up to five people can represent a college/university so it is a good idea to register ASAP. If you have any questions about this event, feel free to email us.
