Chicago’s Healthy Schools Campaign has made the list of finalists in the Allstate Youth Empowerment Awards, a program aimed at producing the next generation of successful leaders.
Operating under the mantle “Every child deserves to learn and thrive,” the Healthy Schools Campaign is “dedicated to ensuring that all students have access to healthy school environments where they can learn and thrive,” as its website explains.
According to a press release from Allstate and awards co-sponsor The Atlantic, The Renewal Awards were conceived to “dive positive change” and reward innovation at the local level, according to a press release.
“We also know from the vast number of applicants that the need is great—but so too is the creativity and diversity among change-makers across the country,” said Stacy Sharpe, senior vice president, corporate relations, Allstate, in the release. “We are proud to support the organizations and individuals working hard to make their neighborhoods stronger.”
Chicago’s Healthy Schools Campaign is one of 15 programs chosen from among 9,300 applicants. On Wednesday, April 3, the winners will be announced at The Renewal Summit in New York City, each receiving a $20,000 grant.
Atlantic Senior Editor Ronald Brownstein said of the finalists: “Their collective message is that even with all of the conflict and stalemate of national politics, America's capacity to renew itself from the bottom up remains as vibrant as ever.”
