"I believe that the human race can be fundamentally better than it is, and students like you will be the ones to change the world to make it what it can be. You are the most formidable proponents of change."
- NSHSS Co-Founder, Claes Nobel
NSHSS is a community of driven individuals who believe that enough is never enough. It is a network of over 1.7 million lifetime members from across the globe who believe in being the next agents of change and the next thought leaders. The Be More Fund celebrates and honors that. As part of the fund requirements, the top 40 applicants took part in a judged competition on November 13-14, 2020. This event was a two-day, virtual gathering featuring a panel of judges and mentors who helped the competing finalists hone and polish their presentation pitches to better their chances of earning one of the $10,000 grants.
We invited all of our members, families, educators, and partners to join us online for the live final round of the Be More-A-Thon. The grant winners chosen and awarded in real time in an exciting final round! The community was inspired by those in the NSHSS network that are using their start-ups, products, prototypes, and nonprofits to pave the way to a better world.
