Chicago Tribune: “Prospect High School, South Middle School students work together to spread anti-bullying message.”

​There’s perhaps no greater source of inspiration for a student than a fellow peer.  Especially an older student who’s blazed a trail by doing something positive in her school and community that sets an example to model for younger students who’ll hopefully follow in the doing good footsteps of those who came before them.  Intrepid AdCap entrepreneurs Lili and Hanna from Prospect High School are great examples of how AdCap winners grow through the program and often become mentors and leaders for younger students.

“Where Are They Now?” Vineet’s Project Update

The AdCap program is not just about coming up with a great idea and getting it funded.  More than that, the REAL learning comes from the process of finessing and implementing that idea as a real, working project in a school and community.  And because every school is different, most projects need to fit within the constructs of how that school operates.   As a matter of fact, a good majority of our AdCap entrepreneurs adjust their original ideas when the reality of bringing them to life at school introduces unforeseen challenges.
