The Michigan Community Service Commission is excited to launch the 2018 Michigan Youth Service Poster Contest! This competition gives young artists the chance to gain statewide recognition for their talents, while also making an impact in their communities. As the state’s lead agency on volunteerism, they believe that all Michigan residents can empower and strengthen their communities from an early age.

Participation is open to all youth enrolled in grades K-12. Participants are required to construct an original design that reflects the theme of volunteer advocacy. Global Youth Service Day is April 20, and will serve as the deadline for design submissions. Winning posters will be unveiled at the Governor’s Service Awards on June 5, 2018 in Lansing.


Let's go EAGLES!! The Childrenz Challenge is an amazing event for the entire community. Please register your kids to participate. When you register, you will be helping Columbia Elementary Schools with their goal of winning first place in the Michigan Community Credit Union School Challenge.
