Happy spring! As the weather gets more pleasant and more things start opening up, we’re sure you’re keeping busy. We are, too, so we’ll get right to it with the latest updates from The Meemic Foundation.
Meemic Masterpieces Poetry Celebration Event
We were overwhelmed by the power and emotion the students showed in our Meemic Masterpieces Poetic Rap Contest, and we are so pleased to showcase the winners in our multi-night Facebook Live event the first week of April. Many of our student writers were able to film videos of themselves presenting their poems, and we’ve put those together to share with you. What a wonderful way to celebrate National Poetry Month!
You are cordially invited to the “world premiere” of the winning entries. Join us at Facebook.com/Meemic
As a reminder, students were asked to write short poems about one of three topics: “COVID-19 Pandemic,” “School Life in 2020” or “Celebrating Diversity.” Winners received a set of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, and sponsoring Foundation Club Members received a $300 school supplies grant for their school.
Fifth Annual Fore! Education Meemic Foundation Golf Outing
We’re pleased to announce that our annual golf fundraiser will be back July 29 at Indianwood Golf & Country Club in Lake Orion, MI. All profits from the fundraiser will go directly to helping schools.
Not a golfer? We are introducing two new fundraising events this year including an online silent auction and our Virtual 5K Leap for Education!
