Service In Action Photo Competition
According to MTCC executive director Dean McGovern “thousands of college students across our region perform invaluable community services every hour of the day. Students teach, tutor, mentor, provide care, recruit volunteers, and use their formidable technical skills to open new doors to nonprofits. Typically students serve as volunteers, service-learners or in internship positions receiving experience and course credit for the time.” To honor the significant public service performed by college students, Colorado Campus Compact is sponsoring a regional photo contest, complete with prizes for top submissions. Any student is eligible, provided he or she attends a Campus Compact member institution. This includes AmeriCorps members actively enrolled in Compact Service Corps.
