3rd annual Tennessee Kids Serve Summer Challenge begins June 1

Tennessee first lady Maria Lee announced Wednesday the third annual Tennessee Kids Serve Summer Challenge will begin on Tuesday, June 1, and run through Sunday, August 1. The summer challenge calls on rising Kindergarten through sixth-grade students to devote a portion of their summer break to serving others.

This year’s challenge includes eight categories from which kids are encouraged to select a service project. To fulfill the challenge, a child must complete an activity from at least four of the eight categories. Challenge participants with the most service hours will be invited to join Governor and first lady Lee at the Tennessee Residence for a fall celebration.

Parents and guardians can register their child online at tn.gov/firstlady/tennessee-serves/tennessee-kids-serve-summer-challenge/challenge-registration or by contacting the Office of the First Lady at 615-741-7846.
