Hope for Students Campaign: Winner Announced!
Announcing Orlando as Winner of Hope for Students ContestHope for Students is a national movement to encourage people of faith to make commitments toward equity and freedom in education. In June, Hope for Students started a campaign encouraging participants to join the movement by pledging to pray for the nation’s students and to become informed on education inequality. The Expectations Project and Hope for Students joined with recording artist Kirk Franklin to bolster support and spread the news. Anyone who took the pledge was automatically entered into a contest to win a special event hosted by Kirk Franklin in their city. As of July 31, the city with the most pledges was Orlando, Florida! All participating contestants within 50 miles of the event will be given a free ticket to the concert, which will feature Kirk Franklin, musical artist Propaganda, and a possible appearance by Derek Minor. The concert will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2016. Location TBA.
