We’re halfway through our the submission period for Taproot’s first-ever Role Model of the Year contest! So far we’ve received lots of great nominations from amazing individuals who have contributed their skills pro bono to a whole host of important social causes. It’s been such an encouragement to see how the pro bono movement has taken different forms and faces all across the country.
The winner will be showcased not only on our Web site and by our partners, but also win a free trip to the 2011 National Conference on Volunteering and Service from June 6-8 in New Orleans, Louisiana!
Be sure you remember to nominate your pro bono heroes before our Nov. 4 deadline. A quick clarification on submissions: while our children’s book and accompanying video Mommy and Daddy Do It Pro Bono spotlight rock-star parents, the contest is open to ANYONE who is setting an example of service for future generations (including yourself!). We can’t wait to read your stories of the pro bono legacy and how it’s influencing our communities. Keep ’em coming!
