Help us tell the LifeSmarts story by sharing yours
We invite you to tell us about your LifeSmarts experience. We are curious what moments stay with you, what topics were the most impactful, and what your students have gained by competing in LifeSmarts. We will use your words to help tell the LifeSmarts story as we celebrate LifeSmarts at 25 next year! Coaches, please use this link to tell us more.
We want to hear from students as well! Encourage your students to use this link to tell us about their LifeSmarts experience.
Competition over? Other ways to win
Many state champions have already been crowned, and in two short weeks we will know all of the teams that will be competing for the National LifeSmarts Championship in San Diego this April! Even if your team is done competing this year, there are still ways for you to win with LifeSmarts:
- The LifeSmarts student essay contest. In 250 words or less, students will write a persuasive essay describing their favorite LifeSmarts moment and why it was memorable for them.
- Launch a Safety Smart community service project and qualify for scholarships and other prizes: Classes and FBLA, FCCLA, and 4-H groups looking for a quick and fun service project can find it right here! The materials for a great activity can be found right at www.LifeSmarts.org: Disney’s Timon & Pumbaa are along to help your students teach valuable life skills, like healthy living, going green, transportation safety, and staying safe at home. The deadline to apply for scholarships is April 13.
- Celebrate the LifeSmarts Year of Health and Safety by becoming an OTC medicine safety mentor. LifeSmarts students can teach 5th and 6th graders about medicine safety or host community events. Materials are scripted and easy to adapt. Student mentors are eligible to apply for $1,000 scholarships by May 31. Teams or chapters may apply for a $500 team community service award. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
- Nominate a stand-out student for the Sarah Weinberg LifeSmarts Memorial Scholarship. This $500 scholarship will be awarded to a LifeSmarts participant who demonstrates a commitment, like Sarah did, to volunteer service work. Scholarship applications are due April 13. One $500 scholarship will be awarded. Nominate a student here.
