#Sponsored: Vote for Maytag Dependable Leader Award

Disclosure: This is a #sponsored post. All opinions stated however, are genuine and my own.


Maytag needs your help to select a winner for the 2013 Maytag Dependable Leader Award. #MC

The award was created to recognize dependable leaders who make a positive difference in the lives of youth through the Boys and Girls Club of America. I am a huge fan of the Boys and Girls Club of America because they take the time to help young ones realize and reach their potential. What better mark to leave on a young person's life than a sense of being valued?

From November 12th through November 29th, visit www.bgca.org/Maytag to learn about the five finalists and the exemplary work they do in their respective communities. Vote once a day for the nominee you think best represents a Maytag Dependable Leader!

The finalists are:
Albert Hernandez-Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena (California)
Ethan Harris-Boys & Girls Club of Bryant (Arkansas)
Nate Ford-Boys & Girls Club of San Francisco (California)
Ricky Gallon-Boys & Girls Club of Tampa Bay (Florida)
Steve Hixson-Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland (Ohio)

Each nominee has their own unique story, and you can view it on the website where you vote: www.bgca.org/Maytag

The winner test will join 24 of this year's other Dependable Leaders across the country and receive a $20,000 financial grant to help his Club continue to improve its impact on its community. The Maytag Dependable Leader Award gives back to Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s professionals and volunteers who continuously give their days to help better the world of youth with whom they work. America’s Vote is an extension of the Awards, inviting Americans to select the final Maytag Dependable Leader Award winner in 2013 by voting online at http://www.bgca.org/Maytag

Voting is an easy way for you to help make a big difference.

    I love that this award goes to people who dedicate themselves with working with others. It is so important to give back to those less fortunate or those who need some extra mentoring and motivation.

    Maytag is a superior brand and most of our kitchen appliances are made from Maytag :-)

    Terrific campaign! I've never had a Maytag (or any other new washer or dryer) but my parents have had Maytags and loved them.
