Gov. Edwards Proclaims Kids' Chance Awareness Week

Governor John Bel Edwards has proclaimed November 9-13, 2020 Kids' Chance Awareness Week in the state of Louisiana. Louisiana Bar Foundation (LBF) President Skip Philips is holding the official proclamation.

Every year the entire Kids’ Chance community (now in 48 states) dedicates one special week to raising awareness of Kids’ Chance Scholarship Program nationwide. The LBF Kids’ Chance committee will send care packages to our current Kids’ Chance scholarship recipients and work to raise awareness of Kids’ Chance in Louisiana.

You can help with Kids’ Chance Awareness Week this year-

  • You can host a “Dress Down for Kids’ Chance Day,” with donors getting to wear jeans to work for the day.
  • Host a “Pizza Party for Kids’ Chance,” letting donors have a fun pizza party at work while sharing Kids’ Chance information with them.
  • Become a sponsor or make a one time donation 

The LBF Kids’ Chance Scholarship Program is for dependents of Louisiana Workers’ killed or permanently and totally disabled in a work accident. Applications for the 2021-22 academic year will be available online December 1, 2020.
