Posted by Zach Maurin on March 1, 2010

The finalists for the Pepsi Refresh Project were announced today: ServeNext.org finished in 7th place in the $50,000 category! The top 10 each win $50,000 pending confirmation. Official announcements will be made in a few weeks.

In addition to ServeNext, four of our coalition members also finished in winning positions: APO, Atlas Corps, myImpact, and World Leadership Corps!

We will keep you updated as things progress and let you know when there are updates.

Thank you to everyone who voted, recruited others, and spread the word about this campaign!  It clearly made a difference and we’re so grateful!

In the meantime, check out this months entries including our friends at Music National Service who are working to build a corps of musicians to teach music to students in public schools: www.refresheverything.com/musiciancorps

    How do you build a coalition of entries? I understand this is very helpful and seems to have been successful for you. We will be in the voting in September.

  2. Houckmd — We reached out to a few organizations we already knew and were able to form the coalition quickly from there. It helped to have existing relationships, but don’t see that as a prerequisite for a coalition. It also helped from the communication standpoint with the networks of all the organizations that the coalition members had related missions (advancing citizen service).

    Hope that helps,
    Zach
