Timeline

LEAD360 is a two-phase challenge.

  • Phase 1 through January 2015

    Phase 1 seeks the best, most innovative big ideas of young people to change the face of:

    • Hunger & Poverty
    • Education & Literacy
    • Health & Wellness

    All ideas are welcome, both thouse already activated and new, innovative ideas for meaning change. Regional, national and online voting determines which three visionary ideas will be powered by the Jefferson Awards Foundation for national impact.

  • Phase 2 March 2015–December 2015

    We will collect project impact for 9 months and track the collective impact all over the country. Those who do the most will become Jefferson Awards winners.
