Newsflash: Help Win the Future
Posted by Points of Light Institute
President Barack Obama has challenged us all to help "Win the Future" by out-educating, out-innovating and out-building our competitors in the 21st century. President Obama believes the best ideas come from the American people and launched a series called Champions of Change to highlight innovation and fresh thinking. Every day in communities across the country, ordinary individuals are doing extraordinary things to improve the lives of others and strengthen their communities. On the heels of the 2011 National Conference on Volunteering and Service, the White House is highlighting 14 Champions of Change - individuals who are solving local problems and redefining civic participation. Read their stories here. Join us in celebrating these individuals who are making a real impact in communities across the country. If you know someone who is doing extraordinary things to make a difference in their community, nominate them to be a Champion of Change.
