ePIFanyNow™ is excited to announce its annual youth recognition initiative called The Y-PIF™ award, which honors kids in grades K – 12 who are passing kindness forward and making positive contributions to their communities.

ePIFanyNow™, which holds annual events to encourage people to go out into the community and commit random acts of kindness, is seeking young leaders who are using their time, talents and treasures to benefit and enhance the lives of others. The next ePIFanyNow™ annual party is from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 3, 2020 at the MSU Federal Credit Union’s main headquarters (3777 West Road in East Lansing).

The public can nominate a youth online at epifanynow.org. Applications are due by Monday, March 30. They will be reviewed by members of the ePIFanyNow™ selection committee and narrowed down to several finalists.

Finalists will be highlighted on the ePIFanyNow.org website starting in early April, where the public can vote for their favorite. Each vote is $1 and will be collected via PayPal. Online voting will open Monday, April 13 and close at 10 p.m. May 2. People attending the May 3 ePIFanyNow™ party will be able to meet the finalists and vote onsite. All monies raised during the voting will be given to the finalist’s chosen charity.
  
The winning Y-PIF award recipient will be announced toward the end of the event on May 3. Winners will be determined by points given by the selection committee during the initial review process. Those will be worth 60 percent of the score. The final 40 percent of the score will be based on the amount of money each finalist raises before and during the event.

The winner will also receive $500 from ePIFanyNow™, which will go to either a pre-approved charity of the winner’s choice or the winner’s in-kind project for further development. The winner’s school will also receive $500 to hold a pass-it-forward event.
  
For finalists who are not selected as the Y-PIF Award winner, all monies raised through the online and event voting process will still be awarded to the charity noted in those participants’ applications.

There's a lot more from Owosso Now to see and hear, including this week's top stories!  Keep going!
