It is that time of year when Penny Harvest students around Colorado are beginning to decide where they will grant their money. We have always been blown-away by the diplomatic and intelligent choices students make, and this year is no exception.
For example, College View Elementary student leaders took the time to engage their entire school with the Penny Harvest mission, posting informative posters in the hallways, presenting to classrooms, and taking votes on what issues the school cared most deeply about. The student council president even created a donation-tracking plan – how sophisticated is that?

It is amazing to see the tasks that these self-directed students tackle, and it is even more astounding to see the maturity that they practice while embarking on such tasks. If we have learned one thing over the years, it is that we cannot underestimate the power of our Penny Harvest students.
