Contest for Teens from The Responsibility Project‏

As summer swings into gear, kids settle into homework-free days and schedules not clocked by the school bell. I love how happy and relaxed my children look during the first few weeks of their summer break. At the same time, I want them to spend their days doing something productive – whether exploring new hobbies, volunteering or helping out around the house – so when August rolls around, they can look back happily on how much they've accomplished, alongside having fun.

This summer, Liberty Mutual is giving teens an extra incentive to get motivated and give back with the Responsibility Project: For the Win contest. From July 7 to August 31, Liberty Mutual wants to hear how your kids helped family members, friends, and their communities during the summer. Liberty Mutual will feature five standout projects on
<> and award the five winners with $500 to donate to a non-profit organization of their choice. Projects can range from babysitting younger siblings, working at charity event or a local non-profit, serving as a camp counselor, or organizing a neighborhood clean-up.

To encourage teens to participate, Liberty Mutual has partnered with Zach Bonner, founder of the Little Red Wagon Foundation, that helps distressed kids across the country. Currently, he is walking thousands of miles from Florida to California to raise awareness of the 1.3 million homeless youth in America. To find out more about Zach, visit

We encourage you to get your kids involved in this great project:

Contest dates: July 7 – August 31
Eligibility: Teens ages 13 – 17
How to enter: Submit a maximum 300-word essay of the project to

The Responsibility Project <>, created by Liberty Mutual, is an organic evolution of the company's advertising campaign that has showcased personal acts of responsibility and daily examples of ordinary people making the decision to do considerate things for strangers. Through The Responsibility Project, Liberty Mutual is using entertaining content, including independently produced short films, blogs, articles, and television programming, to encourage conversation about what it means to "do the right thing."

We hope you and your teens will be inspired to share their summer plans with the project, and win the chance to secure funds for their favorite organization!
