ALL-IN launched one month ago, and we already have some ALL-IN All-stars to highlight! Check out who made our first roster:

John was the first on record to finish all 16 challenges! Here’s his tweet to prove it:

Staff members at FlashPoint have been going ALL-IN as part of team-building exercise. Here’s a photo of the team in front of their DISCOVER challenge completion activity! (see picture, right)

Minnetrista
This Muncie museum and cultural center encouraged its staff members to participate. The go-getter of the group is Allison Schroer (@allisondipity) who wrote about ALL-IN and why she loves Indiana, here.

Canterbury School
A 7th grade class in this Fort Wayne college prep school completed essays on completing the challenges. Here’s are excerpts from some of our favorites:

Challenge: Tell us about a book character you’ll never forget
“I don’t know anyone living on this planet as wise or as brave as Atticus [Finch, from To Kill a Mockingbird]. Even out of all the books I’ve read in my entire life, there’s never been a character like Atticus. I’ve never read a book where the author just put so much thought into the writing that goes on the pages of their book. This character has really inspired me and amazed me.”

Challenge: Perform a random act of kindness
“I performed a random act of kindness by giving my friend a cupcake. I enjoy baking, so it was fun. And seeing their reaction made me feel good (I guess I’m not that horrible at baking). Random acts of kindness are important for a community because they make everyone feel special and loved. Also, when someone performs an act of kindness to another person it makes them feel good inside.”

Honorable Mentions:

Challenge: Share why you love Indiana.
