Congrats to UNL Academy Senior and 2014 New Look Global Youth Leadership Award recipient, Mary-Pat Hector, whose P#ThinkTwice Campaign, which began as a New Look Powered by Service project, now has billboards all throughout inner-city Atlanta!
“When you have a vision or an idea people think is crazy, do not listen to people who can’t see past the stars. In July, we put 35 billboards up in Zone 1 and Zone 3. Juvenile violent crime went down the three months our billboards were up and gun violence decreased.” -Mary-Pat Hector
If you know a young person between the ages of 8 and 22 who has their own unique service project, nominate them for the $25,000 Peace First Prize by visiting www.peacefirst.org/Prize. Mary-Pat won this prize two years ago and used the money to invest in her Think 2wice Campaign!
