All kids are required to find their own lawns. We have suggested to all parents that one of the best ways to find lawns is by posting on local yard sale pages on FB that your kid is taking part in the 50 yard challenge and is looking for lawns to mow for FREE of those who are elderly, disabled, single parents or veterans. 90% of our kids are able to finds lawns this way. Some are even go door to door and ask . This is also anther way for kids to get to meet people they likely wouldn’t have met before and gives them a chance to know their neighbors .
We strongly encourage kids to team up with a friend of sibling. We have found that this challenge can be used as a great bonding time together .
There is no time limit to the 50 yard challenge . Kids can take as long as they need.
Kids may do a lawn more than once, but we encourage kids to find as many lawns as they can .
At each lawn your child mows/shovels, please take pictures of them in action. Also, please take before & after pictures of their work as well . IF you are familiar with how I take pictures when I do my lawns, I take them with the person whose lawn I mow if they are up to it and if they aren’t or not home I take a picture at their door via my selfie stick.
You can send the pictures to (256) 508-9440 or firstname.lastname@example.org
