NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Tennessee first lady Marie Lee has announced plans for the second annual Kids Serve Summer Challenge.

This year's challenge will run from June 1 to August 1.

Rising kindergartners through sixth grade students are encouraged to devote part of their summer to serving others by completing an activity in at least four of eight categories.

Each category will offer an at-home options and ways to serve the community from a distance.

This year's categories include:

  • Care for the food-insecure
  • Encourage essential workers
  • Show kindness to the elderly
  • Support foster kids and families
  • Thank first responders
  • Honor veterans and servicemen and women
  • Uplift the homeless
  • Free choice

"At a young age, my parents instilled in me a heart for service," said Lee. "It is my hope this challenge will do the same in kids across the state."

Parents and guardians can register their child online by clicking here or by contacting the Office of the First Lady at 615-741-7846.

Students who complete the challenge will receive a certificate of recognition signed by the first lady.
