#GivingTuesday Contest – Up To $10,000 For OWSS!


This November, the #GivingTuesday movement is running #MyGivingStory, a national campaign that invites people to share stories with their friends and family of why they give. They are asking individuals across the country to share their personal reasons for giving, and then share those stories with their communities.

As a supporter of One World Stage & Screen, we’d be honored if you would take this opportunity to reflect upon your commitment to our work. If your essay is selected, we could be one of the recipients to receive a grant.

How to Enter #MyGivingStory

  • The call for submissions will open on November 17th, 2016 at 10am.
  • On the #MyGivingStory tab of #GivingTuesday’s Facebook Page, (http://bit.ly/2fM4SJp) post a short essay (150 word minimum) responding to the question, “What inspires you to give?”
  • Share your giving story!
  • The essays need to be specific to our organization and link to our site: owss.net. Submissions will be open until December 31st, 2016 at 5pm ET.
  • Share and promote your submission on social media with #MyGivingStory and #GivingTuesday.

The top 20 essays “liked” by Facebook readers will be sent to a distinguished panel of judges. These judges will pick six winners and honorable mentions for best use of original video and best Spanish language story. The winners’ associated nonprofit organizations will receive grants for $2,500-10,000. Winners will be announced on in mid-January, 2017.

We hope you plan to join us in celebrating #GivingTuesday this year in whatever way you wish.  Thank you for your support of OWSS. We are really excited about #MyGivingStory and #GivingTuesday, and hope you will participate in all our year-end activities!
