Decisions with Impact: Student Philanthropy in Action

In conjunction with the conference, the Learning by Giving Foundation is sponsoring a national video contest in which students will apply their philanthropic knowledge and decision-making skills to compete for $10,000 on behalf of a nonprofit organization that reflects their philanthropic values and strategies.  Student philanthropists from several colleges and universities will participate in the conference. Their videos will be on display throughout the day and the winning video, as determined by student voting, will be announced at the end of the day.
