Drum Roll, Please…. Announcing the 2014 RESPECT! Challenge


By: Lauren Brisbo, FUTURES Communications Team 

This week, we launched our third annual RESPECT! Challenge with a video featuring YouTube sensations Chris Collins and Diamond White. At the heart of the RESPECT! Challenge is a simple question: Who would you like to thank for teaching you Respect?

From now until November 14th, we’re asking people across the nation to tell us about the everyday heroes in their lives. Entering has never been easier! Send in short essays or videos to the Facebook applicationmicrosite (no Facebook account required) or by using #RespectChallenge2014 on Instagram, Twitter, or Vine.

The grand prize winner will receive $10,000 to donate to their nonprofit or school of their choice, a $500 Macy’s shopping spree, and two VIP tickets to New York City for a special surprise event.

Additionally, we’ll be choosing weekly winners on Instagram, Vine, and Twitter–who will each receive a $100 Macy’s gift card! What are you waiting for?

 Take the RESPECT! Challenge now!
