Student leaders showcase their H.E.A.R.T. used throughout the Bucks for Bears experience. Students will choose from 3 options to showcase their caring H.E.A.R.T.s:

  • Produce a 3 minute or less video
  • Write a 500 words or less essay
  • Create a community art project with written interpretation 300 words or less

Entries will be judged by the criteria outlined in H.E.A.R.T.

– Healing
E – Empathy
– Action
– Raising Awareness
T – Teamwork

Specifically, Catherine Cares would like your submission to showcase your school’s H.E.A.R.T. by answering the following questions:

  1. What fundraising event did you implement to raise funds for Bucks for Bears? (Action, Raising Awareness & Teamwork)
  2. How did you decide on that specific event? (Action, Raising Awareness, & Teamwork)
  3. What impact do you think your event had on families? (Healing & Empathy)
  4. How did participating in Bucks for Bears impact you/make you feel? (Healing & Empathy)

All submissions are due by Friday, April 7, 2017.

In late April 2017, a letter will be sent to every participating school informing them of the outcome of the grant process. All participating schools will be recognized with a Thank You poster.

The winning school will be presented with the grant check and a Thank You poster. Arrangements to deliver a round of bears to one of Catherine Cares’ hospital partners will be made between school staff, the Bucks for Bears committee, and hospital personnel.
