We're bringing back the Spirit Award to give to the nominee whose community demonstrates the most support for their nomination! The winner of the Spirit Award will receive $5,000 to be shared between a $2,500 individual award and a $2,500 donation to their school.
Showing spirit can be as simple as leaving a supportive comment on your LifeChanger's profile, or as big as holding a pep rally in honor of your LifeChanger's incredible work.
The moment David Collins was nominated for LifeChanger of the Year, his community rallied behind his nomination. Many of his students and colleagues left supportive comments and shared his profile on social media, but they also showed support in more creative ways. For example, they rallied the entire Gallatin community together to hold a parade in his honor and streamed it on Facebook. They captured an aerial #LCOY shot to support David while he was hospitalized, and they even held a dress up day in his honor! As a result of their efforts, David was the recipient of the 2017-18 LifeChanger of the Year Spirit Award and received $5,000 to be shared with his school.
