About the Clemente Community Challenge

The Clemente Community Challenge is a free program and competition for students in grades 6-8. Student teams are asked to identify a need or worthy cause in their school or community, develop and complete a project plan, and produce a two-minute video documenting their service project. The Clemente Community Challenge is sponsored by the National Registry of Unclaimed Retirement Benefits in partnership with the Roberto Clemente Foundation and the Youth Cinema Project.

The completed videos of the student teams’ service projects can then be submitted via the Official Entry Form. Once entries are submitted, student teams—or individual students—plus their teacher or adult supervisor will be in the running for the Grand Prize:  Opening Day 2023 tickets to an MLB game, a $500 Savings Bond plus a Samsung tablet!

The Clemente Community Challenge is made possible through the partnership of the following organizations:
The Roberto Clemente Foundation promotes positive change and community engagement through the example of legendary Baseball Hall of Famer and humanitarian Roberto Clemente. The mission of the Foundation, established by the Clemente family, is Building Nations of Good around the world. The Foundation has led other programs in addition to the Clemente Community Challenge, including disaster relief efforts and veteran support initiatives, to name a few.

The Youth Cinema Project, run by the Latino Film Institute, offers project-based learning that impacts its participants in life-changing ways. The program brings industry professionals to classrooms around California in grades 4-12 and collaborates with school districts to implement its curriculum. The Latino Film Institute showcases, strengthens, and celebrates the richness of Latino lives by providing a pipeline, platform, and launching pad from their community into the entertainment industry.
