ACAEF Sponsors Exciting New Contest - Win Loomer-Mortenson Scholarships
Join in Collectors Challenge this year to support the ACA International Education Foundation and the chance to win a $1,000 scholarship.
Collectors Challenge Month comes with an added bonus this year, the chance to win one of five $1,000 Loomer-Mortenson Scholarships from the ACA International Education Foundation (ACAEF.)
The ACAEF will make awards to participating member companies with the most fundraising proceeds, most creative Collectors Challenge activities and for submitting a video of highlights from the month in the first ever Collectors Challenge Fundraising Contest.
The five Collectors Challenge prize scholarships are being awarded in addition to the 15 merit-based scholarships that are open to all Loomer-Mortenson Scholarship applicants.
Collectors Challenge Month kicks off April 1 and the contest runs from May 1 through May 30, 2017.
Collectors Challenge contest prize categories include:
- Most funds raised by a tier three (100 or more employees) company member entrant during Collectors Challenge.
- Most funds raised by a tier two (25-99 employees)company member entrant during Collectors Challenge.
- Most funds raised by a tier one (1-24 employees) company member entrant during Collectors Challenge.
- Most creative Collectors Challenge fundraising activity.
- Best entrant video submission.
Entrants must participate in a Collectors Challenge fundraising activity in April; submit a completed Collectors Challenge Month Final Report documenting their activities along with proceeds to the ACAEF, and/or a video documenting highlights of Collectors Challenge.

Participation in Collectors Challenge can be simple, such as a one-time event, or one event per week, and most importantly a fun way for member companies to work together for a good cause. By supporting the ACAEF, you can help create a more positive public image of the industry, and encourage your colleagues to take pride in their work.
Check out the ACAEF Collectors Challenge toolkit for more ideas and planning resources. For example, try a karaoke or cooking contest, walk, run or bike-a-thon, silent auction or community service project during Collectors Challenge.
One winner per category in the Collectors Challenge contest will be selected the week of June 11, 2017 and notified before June 30.
The winning company may designate an employee or dependent of an employee as the Loomer-Mortenson Scholarship recipient.
ACA International encourages members, company and state unit leaders to share the Loomer-Mortenson Scholarship and Collectors Challenge opportunity with their entire staff and colleagues in the industry through their website, newsletters or internal email updates.
