Student Service Challenges

Win a Scholarship!

Announcing the Discover Challenge!

We’re thrilled to announce that Discover has joined The Humanity Rising Movement!

Doing the Right Thing, Innovation and Volunteerism are part of Discover’s core values. In partnership with Discover’s Young Professionals and Generations of Leaders groups they’ve joined the Humanity Rising Movement to recognize and reward students who are creating a more compassionate and better world through service.

Eligibility: All High School Students in the Greater Chicago Area!

How to Participate: Submit your service stories by October 29th to be eligible to win a $2500, $1500 or $1000 scholarship! There are two ways to submit your story:

Video Submissions

Create and upload a 60-second video and use the hashtag #HRDISCOVER

The video can just be of you talking, or you can get creative and share pictures of your service. To check out samples of other students’ videos, visit our Service Story page.

Here is an outline for your video:

Hi, my name is __________, and I’m part of the Humanity Rising Movement. The cause that inspires me is __________ [state your cause(s)].

End your video with, “I challenge you to join the Humanity Rising Movement and tell us, What Cause Inspires You?”

Remember to limit the video to 60 seconds.

And most importantly, speak from your heart!

Written Submissions

Please limit your submission to 500 words or less, and feel free to upload photos!

There are no minimum hours required and no specific activity that is more or less compelling in the eyes of our judges. We’re looking for service that was impactful and meaningful to you and those who benefitted from your volunteerism or innovative service project. A good rule of thumb is at least ten (10) hours of overall engagement.

Finalists will be notified in November.


Thank you for being a part of the Humanity Rising Movement.

Together, we will change the world!
