Turning students into community leaders

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Nearly 1,500 students will gather Thursday at the Cintas Center for the Anthony Munoz Foundation 13th Annual Youth Leadership Seminar.

The free event empowers students to become community leaders and volunteers.

Students will be asked to develop a community service project based on needs in their community or school.

They can enter their project in the #AMFChallenge, where they can receive up to $2,000 in funding for their school.
