Health Delivery, Inc. (HDI) will receive a $10,000 prize after a group of Saginaw High School students won a national contest for a video they created thanking their role models for teaching them about respect.
Saginaw High School’s School-Based Health Center Teen Advisory Council submitted the video to a contest through Futures Without Violence, a nonprofit social change organization, as part of the Respect! Challenge that celebrates everyday heroes. The students were able to select a nonprofit or school of their choice, and chose to gift the $10,000 grand prize to HDI, which operates the School-Based Health Center.
“Health Delivery is so very proud of the Saginaw High School Teen Advisory Council and their fantastic attitudes portrayed in their winning video! The guidance and mentoring they receive on a daily basis from our HDI staff at the School-Based Health Center is truly amazing,” said HDI Public Relations Manager Monica Woods. “We could not be more proud! The money being donated to HDI will benefit these students not only to enhance the excellent medical care they are provided, but also to support their overall well-being. After all, we are their medical home!”
As part of the grand prize, the winner also receives a trip to New York City to attend the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
“We’re so impressed by the number of creative, thoughtful, and moving entries we received for the RESPECT! Challenge,” said Futures Without Violence President and Founder Esta Soler in a statement. “The contest was intended to ignite a dialogue about the important role that parents, teachers, coaches, families, and mentors play in promoting a respectful society.”
HDI operates Health Centers throughout Mid-Michigan.
