Community Changemaker Challenge [C3]

Kiwanis is excited to announce the Community Changemaker Challenge (C3), a virtual, hands-
on, 4-week design thinking challenge for high school students across the country, delivered by
Shad Canada and &Vision! Kiwanis, Shad Canada, and &Vision have continuously promoted
learning, growth, and community for students, and we want to leverage this opportunity to
amplify the impact of each organization.

The Community Changemaker Challenge (C3) is intended to provide students with a unique
learning experience and a chance to develop skills and mindsets for problem solving,
innovation, business, and entrepreneurship. Teams of four will be formed based on each
participating Key Club President’s recommendations and will then complete an expression of
interest as a team through Shad Canada’s portal.

The goal of C3 is to “design an innovative solution to a challenge your team identifies for
your community”. This 4-week challenge will kick-off on Friday October 14, 2022, with a mix of
synchronous and asynchronous learnings and an opportunity to design and pitch your team’s
solution to a panel of experts, including university staff, Shad Canada, &Vision, Kiwanis
members, and industry professionals.


Week 1: Oct 17, 19, 21
Week 2: Oct 24, 26, 28
Week 3: Pitch Prep week
Week 4: Nov 7 (pitch), Nov 9 (celebration)

Note: all sessions will take place virtually between 6-8pm EDT over Zoom. The registration fee
for each team is $200. Only 10 teams will be selected to participate so sign up fast!
