Fremont, NE (AP) - A new contest in Fremont is aimed at teaching children the value of giving back to their community.
The Fremont Tribune says the contest has been launched by the Fremont Area Community Foundation.
In the contest, youths are asked to propose projects that will better the community. The contest is divided into three school class groups: kindergarten through fourth grade, fifth through eighth grade and ninth through 12th grade.
One winner from each group will be selected and will be given a $1,000 grant from the foundation.
The winning youths will be matched up with area nonprofits or service clubs to help them turn their ideas into projects.
