Sponsor The Trading Card Program
You Matter (UmattR.com)
The program promotes 12 High School Seniors with diverse interests who are committed to living drug, alcohol and tobacco free. They serve as mentors to younger kids while at the same time honing the skills necessary to become our future community leaders. They excel in various extracurricular personal interests and skills, including athletics, FFA, photography, music, dance, computers or other such positive activities. Each senior is featured on their own trading card which they take to area elementary schools and events to sign for younger students. At this time they discuss their positive choices and hope to mentor these students to become positive, future leaders themselves. After the younger students have collected all 12 cards and have them signed, they may then enter a drawing to win prizes at Kidfest, held the first part of June of each year. For all the hard work they do throughout the year, the teens will receive a $1,000 scholarship at the end of the program. The program is designed to promote real world positive role models for children. These teens are positive peer mentors and role models who are an important factor in the future choices of the younger generations. Each senior signs a contract to do a minimum of 15 school visits or community events throughout the school year, delivering their message to hundreds of their peers, younger children, parents and other adults.
