Florida’s Rising Star

For the first time ever, One Voice IMPAACT is partnering with Children’s Week to present the Florida’s Rising Star Award to a young adult who is making an impact in their community and inspiring others to SHINE (Show Up, Help Out, Improve, Network, & Empower). The Florida’s Rising Star Award exemplifies the character of SHINE by:

Show Up

I understand that I am in charge of my own life. I agree to always arrive on time, ready to do my best, no matter what I’m doing.

Help Out

I understand that true life success is not just about me, but also about the other people around me. I agree to do my part in serving the community around me every day, so that we can all see a better tomorrow.


I understand that I can always do better. I agree to always try to do more, work harder, and strive to be the best version of myself. I will not be afraid to ask questions and I will reach for my goals.


I understand that I can’t do it alone. I agree to actively reach out to others to build and maintain rewarding relationships.


I understand that my words are powerful. I agree to always use my influence to uplift and inspire people, instead of using it to hurt and harm others.
