Other Opportunities: January 2011 Archives

Sunday, January 30 at 2pm watch Auburn Women's Basketball team take on South Carolina at Auburn Arena.  Celebrating National Girls and Women in Sports Day AND Girl Scout Day, the team is offering free admission with this attached flyer to this game.

A halftime performance by Auburn Wheelchair Basketball and a post-game autograph session with the Women's Basketball team adds to the fun.  Attendees are also encouraged to bring pet food to donate to benefit the Lee County Humane Society for Adopt-A-Pet Awareness.
The Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame is a national program that was created to honor every day people (including teens and kids!) with energetic spirit who strive to make a positive difference in their communities. The program looks for people who live with the same perseverance and determination as the Energizer Bunny -- people who inspire others with their unstoppable energy.

Nominees will be narrowed to a field of 100 semifinalists who will be honored in their hometowns.  Then, the judges will select nine finalists, and the Energizer Bunny's Facebook fans will vote on the 10th. All ten finalists' names and stories will be posted online.  At that point, America will be given a chance to select the inductee through an online vote. The voting will take place beginning April 4, 2011, and continuing through May 14, 2011. The Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame inductee will attend a special induction ceremony at the Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame in St. Louis, Mo. The inductee will also receive a $10,000 cash award and an additional $5,000 will be donated to the charity of his/her choice. Each finalist will also get $1,000 donated to the charity of his/her choice.

Nominations are being accepted now through Friday, February 4 at www.energizer.com/halloffame <https://mail.blickandstaff.com/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.energizer.com/halloffame> .
