We just found out about this exciting opportunity for our students and clubs at Readergirlz.com. This would be a WONDERFUL class project, club project, or individual project for Creekview students!
Community Challenge: Go Overboard Challenge Grant
This month we’re challenging readergirlz to Go Overboard with an idea to make a difference — and win a Go Overboard Challenge Grant to put your plan into action.
Burton Snowboards and award-winning author / readergirlz co-founder Justina Chen Headley are co-sponsoring the Go Overboard Challenge Grant with Youth Venture to fund the best youth-led ideas to change the world.
Commit to a cause you’re already passionate about – whether it’s saving the environment, ending world hunger, or protecting endangered species. With the help of local Vermont maple syrup makers (Green Mountain Sugar House), Olympic Gold medalist Hannah Teter bottles Hannah’s Gold to earn money for AIDS orphans in Africa. Justina co-founded readergirlz – our online book community – to promote literacy in teen girls. Syrah in Justina’s novel Girl Overboard spearheaded a huge snowboarding event to raise awareness for cancer. So think about a problem and figure out a solution!
Then tell us how you, your club, your team, or your entire school will Go Overboard by:
* forming a team (two or more persons) and filling out an action plan
* proposing a new sustainable organization (venture) to address a problem you have identified in your school, neighborhood, community, the world!
The best ideas will win one of 12 grants, each worth $1000, to help them realize their vision.
The rest of the divas want to thank Justina for making Syrah such an inspirational character in Girl Overboard and for working so hard on this grant opportunity with Burton Snowboards, Youth Venture, and Hannah Teter. You’re always right out there in front with a giving spirit.
Our challenge to all you readergirlz: Go Overboard with an idea now. May the best reach-out readergirl win a Go Overboard Grant!

Thank you CRHS community for your support to JROTC and the Army unit that JRTOC sponsors in Iraq. As many of you know, we (JROTC) are making a shipment at the end of the month to send the soldiers Holiday Greetings. As a special gift to each soldier, we are supporting Chaplain Turner’s Christmas stocking gift drive. We have committed to providing 50 stockings. We have the stockings, and now we are looking for the stuffing. We will take all donations, but here are the priority items we need.
- Holiday Greeting cards addressed to “Any Soldier” (as many as we can get!)
- Hard candy, non-perishable snacks, and beef jerky.
- 60 minute domestic phone cards. We need 50 of them minimum, and we want each soldier to receive same type These cards will allow the troops to call home on Christmas.
All morale items received will ship, but these are what we need most. Several clubs and classes are assisting us, and we thank you for your continued support. The Unquiet Library will be glad to help deliver any donations students or faculty wish to make to this worthy cause!
