Winners of the 2013 Piggybackr One Million Leaders Challenge!

In November 2013, we challenged young people and communities nationwide to take the lead and raise money on Piggybackr during the holiday season as a part of the Piggybackr Million Leaders Challenge.

We challenged YOU to raise funds for something that mattered to you and each week leading up to the deadline, we awarded teams with cool prizes.

Our challenge attracted attention from people all over the country. Your stories were featured on the news and on TV. Together we inspired many to take the lead.

But most importantly, you truly inspired us by raising money for causes that mattered to you: Rebuilding New Orleans, self-publishing a book, building robots, rocking out in marching band, and even volunteering to help others in need. Here's a complete list of the winners:

Week 2 (Meet & Greet with Selena Gomez): 
Ana-Rose Hart raising funds for a new power wheelchair 

Week 3 (Professional photo shoot by SmartShoot): 
Milpitas High School Student Council raising funds for their annual canned food drive benefiting the community

Week 4 (Signed Adrian Peterson Football):
Bakersfield College Drumline raising funds to get to World Championships in Dayton, Ohio

Week 5 (Chat with Michele Markey, Kauffman Foundation Fastrac):
Kiran Rao raising funds to go on a summer volunteer service trip to Guatemala as a part of the Young Dreamers Network

Week 6 (Chat with Cordell Carter, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation):
Lower 9th Ward Village, a nonprofit in New Orleans that serves as a hub for the community can access more resources to become self-sufficient and sustain their quality of life post Hurricane Katrina

Week 7 (1-on-1 with Kevin Harrington, original Shark Tank Investor):
Connell Wise raising funds to publish a new book on how to do accounting for BitCoins. 

Grand Prize Winner Voted by our Panel of Judges (Leaders of the Year 2013):
Congratulations to the Buchanan Bird Brains, a FIRST Robotics Team from Clovis, CA raising funds to build robots and inspire young people to get into STEM.

Last but not least, a special thank you to our judges and community partners. Congratulation everyone - until next year.

However, you cannot study for your degree completely online, as classroom time in a school is a requirement for the completion of your degree.
