Name all your winners.<br />Unfortunately since our school is new we had to start our program from the <br />bottom and try to build it up. This makes it harder on for our school to get the<br />word out there. We had a winner every Quarter instead of month. Our winners<br />were Zavia Menning, Deena Sayyed, Nadia Shokrani, and Mathivadana<br /> Selvamani <br />Describe how you connected interested volunteers to volunteer opportunities.<br />We got the opportunity to go help this shop for teachers get started. We went and organized the shop and helped them get things ready for the opening day. We also had an HHS field day where people from the community came together to clean our schools beautiful campus. <br />
  6. 6. HELP DESK FOR HELP:EXPAND VOLUNTEER CAPACITYcontinued……<br />Did you assist any volunteer groups in the school to help improve their results?<br />Our leadership class took on the Jefferson Awards and we do volunteer <br />projects all the time. We encouraged each Student Government class to<br />do some type of volunteer work. So far the Freshman, Sophomore, and <br />Junior class have been to places to volunteer their time. <br /><ul><li>Did you assist any individuals in the school seeking to start a volunteer project?
  7. 7. As a leadership class we helped ZaviaMenning get a project going. Zavia completed a project that consisted of feeding 500 families for Thanksgiving. She had the whole school help her collect food so she could feed 500 families.
  8. 8. Bottom Line: Describe how you leveraged the SIA program to increase volunteerism in the school.
  9. 9. As we have created more exposure for the Jefferson </li></ul>Awards at our school, students have had an increase desire <br />to serve the community in pursuit of winning a Jefferson <br />Award. <br />Zavia Menning<br />
  10. 10. EXPANDS FINANCIAL CAPACITY FOR VOLUNTEERS<br />Describe any SIA fundraisers you did during the school year<br />Unfortunately, this year we did not participate in any fundraisers to raise money for SIA, when we purchased the gift cards we used money we already had in our SGA account. <br />

Who did you send them to and how often were they sent?<br />The only press release sent out this year was for Zavia Menning. We sent it to the Orlando Sentinel and they came and did a piece on Zavia and what she had done for the community. <br />Were volunteers and your winners recognized through this process?<br />Yes our winners have been announced through the morning<br /> announcements.

  12. 12. GROWTH AND EXPANSION OF SIA<br />Describe the process of how you made other schools aware and how you broadly promoted SIA.<br />We are trying to build up the awareness of The Jefferson Awards in our own school before we reach out to other schools in the area. <br />Did you lend assistance or mentor another school in the program this year? If so, please describe how.<br />This year was a very busy year for us kids at Paul J. Hagerty High School so unfortunately we did not get to assist another school into the SIA program. Hopefully next year we can go over to Lawton Chiles Middle School and encourage them to be involved in SIA.<br />Lawton Chiles<br />
  13. 13. INNOVATES<br />Describe any improvements you have made from last year.<br />This year more people in our school were more involved in <br />our community and helping out our environment. We had more <br />people nominated for The Jefferson Awards so it was harder to <br />pick the winner each quarter. This year the prize was also a bigger<br />amount of money. <br />Next year we hope to have a Jefferson Awards scholarship. We would <br />take money that we either fundraised or took out of the leadership account and put it toward a scholarship. After we chose all the winners we would look at all the applications and see which person was the most involved. We would then award that person with The Jefferson Awards Scholarship. <br />
