Express Yourself (530).jpg

Are you serving your community? Snap, share, and win $500!

The Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) Commission on Political Reform is encouraging Americans to engage in public service, whether that means serving in political office or the military, joining an organization like Americorps or the Peace Corps, or serving in other ways in your local community. The commission wants to hear from you. How do you serve your community? What does public service mean to you?

Send BPC a photo to enter the Snaps of Service contest. Winning photos will be on display at BPC’s upcoming National Conversation on Public Service event in Philadelphia on July 23.
