WARREN, Mich., April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Michigan-based mentoring program Winning Futures, a 501(c)3 program founded in 1994, and Hamilton Chevrolet will award one of its former student alumni with the use of a Corvette for one weekend. This prize drawing was inspired by an incentive program once run by Winning Futures that annually rewarded one outstanding high-school student for their goal-setting achievements.
"Students in the program were highly motivated to do well in class and increase their goals by the chance to drive a Corvette for a week," said Kristina Marshall, Winning Futures' President and CEO. "So, this year we decided to revive the program with a bit of a twist to encourage feedback about the impact of Winning Futures by alumni. We are hoping to reach as many alumni across the country as possible with the help of the media and other alumni spreading the word through a social media campaign."
All Winning Futures' alumni are eligible to win the use of the Corvette no matter where they may now reside. Hamilton Chevrolet of Warren, Michigan is providing the use of the car.
To be entered into the prize drawing, all Winning Futures' alumni must do is take part in a short online survey which they can access at www.WinningFutures.org. The name of the winning alumnus will be drawn on June 8th and have their award announced to the media.
