Hey Tampa, Lisa here with a cool program sponsored by Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey.
The Greatest Show On Earth, is celebrating children who give back to their community. In conjunction with a two-year celebration of the 200th anniversary of P.T. Barnum's birth, Ringling Bothers and Barnum & Bailey is launching The Barnum Award. This award honors the spirit of the founder of The Greatest Show On Earth. The goal is to celebrate children who give back to their own communities in creative, fun, and innovative ways.
This award is designed to recognize and support children from ages six to 14. It is geared toward those individuals who have created social good and enriched their local community through their own inventive and pioneering actions. Award recipients in more than 75 cities throughout the United States. The winners will be chosen by a panel of distinguished local luminaries, and will receive awards and grants to fund future programs. The nominees will be judged by their accomplishments, creativity and innovation, and their inspiration to others relating to their cause. Nominators must be over 21, and must fill out a short questionnaire. You can submit applications online.
This is a very unique opportunity from some very famous Tampa Bay Entertainment. Anything that gets kids excited to help out their community is a great cause in my book. So get out there Tampa and start nominating!
