My name is Joshua Williams and I want to tell you about the STOP Hunger Scholarships, which honor students like me and you who work in our neighborhoods to fight hunger. I’m 9 now, but started helping to feed hungry people in Miami when I was a little kid. My Foundation, Joshua’s Heart, distributes food every week to homeless, elderly, and homebound people in our town.
As a 2010 STOP Hunger Scholar, I was awarded a $5,000 scholarship (which my mom put in the bank for college) and Joshua’s Heart received a $5,000 grant, which was really helpful in these tough times.
So now’s the time to apply for the 2011 Scholarships! If you’re making a difference helping hungry people in your community, you should tell the Sodexo Foundation about it and maybe you will be selected as one of this year’s national STOP Hunger Scholars. Your local charity will get a $5,000 grant and you’ll get to put the same amount away for college. Don’t wait – the application deadline is February 18, 2011!

PS: Watch me on YouTube! I look really young there but it’s pretty much still me.
Help us spread the word by posting the $5,000 scholarships flyer at your school, on campus or in your local community.
