Thirty-nine student teams pitched their community service projects to judges via video submissions for Loudoun Youth’s annual Step Up competition.
Following scoring by a panel of judges, 10 teams advanced to the final round, which will be conducted as part of a Zoom video call—and broadcast on Facebook live—on April 28.
This year’s finalists are 90 Beats per Second; Clean Nails Everybody Everywhere; Dancing for Happiness and Healthiness; EHK Tutoring Group; Generating Electricity By Walking; HydroLution; LSE – Life Skills Education; P.E.N. for Kids (Posture Education is Necessary for Kids); Seneration; and Wheelchair Accessible Slide.
The teams spent more than 4,890 hours on their projects, reaching over 7,000 people with a collective community impact of over $134,000.
