Binghamton University students Alexandria Hall, Rachel Engle, Timothy Tschurjumov, Lauren Colantino and Jennifer Solomon won the $10,000 first prize in a national philanthropy contest by creating a video about the UHS School-based Clinic program. The students presented a check for $10,000 to the UHS School-Based Clinic’s after-school and summer programs in April, in the garden plot of Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School in Binghamton.
In the video, Binghamton University students focused on the degree of need demonstrated by the UHS program and the impact that an additional $10,000 would have in expanding the program. The video can be seen here. This is the second year in a row that Associate Professor of Public Administration David Campbell’s students have placed first in the contest.
The video contest is funded by the Learning by Giving Foundation, created in 2011 through the generosity of Doris Buffett, following the success of the program by the same name through her Sunshine Lady Foundation. The Learning by Giving Foundation funds and promotes experiential philanthropy to encourage the development of future philanthropic leaders.
