Winners are decided by either specific clients providing the grant or by members of the ShareYourself staff. We select winners during a meeting dedicated to thoroughly reviewing each individual application and project.

      • Frequency of logins
      • Opening and closing tasks and milestones
      • Creating detailed, creative and authentic tasks and milestones
      • Sharing updates
  • Active communication with the ShareYourself team regarding the project.
  • Demonstration of enthusiasm and dedication for the project, social/environmental impact, and action the project requires in order to succeed.
