While it’s true that volunteering is its own reward, a little recognition for your good deeds never hurts. Through its Kids Who Give contest, national food brand Farm Rich celebrates kids ages 7-17 who are making a difference in their communities. The annual contest recognizes kids across the country who are helping to make the world a better place and awards more than $10,000 to their projects and communities. Last year’s winners rode mountain bikes to fight childhood cancer, worked with NASCAR drivers to raise awareness of a rare disorder, and collected iPods for sick children. Entries are accepted each spring and winners are announced in late summer. For more info on this year’s contest, check out kidswhogive.com.
