for the Foundation of the National Student Nurses’ Association Road to Nashville
Nationwide Membership Challenge
The 2014 Annual Convention will take place in Nashville, Tennessee. The NSNA Board of Directors and the FNSNA Board of Trustees have issued a nationwide membership challenge to help raise funds to support the undergraduate scholarship program.
What is the challenge? Each NSNA election area (North, South, East, West) is challenged to raise a minimum of $1,500 by Friday, February 7th at 5 pm EST. Click here to see what election area your school’s state is in.
What can you WIN? The state with the largest dollar amount of donations in the winning election area will be recognized at the Annual Convention in Nashville, Tennessee. Additionally, there will be a drawing for the winning election area and one lucky nursing student from that area will receive complimentary registration to the Annual Convention in Nashville, Tennessee in April 2014.
How can your area win? To be eligible to win, election areas must raise at least $1,500. The winning election area will be the area that raises the most funds beyond the $1,500 minimum.
How many donations are needed? The total dollar amount raised, not the number of donations, is what determines the winning election area. All donations, big and small, are accepted ($10 minimum). For example, your election area would need 150 people to donate $10 to reach the minimum goal.
Who can participate? Donations can be made by anyone. All donations will be acknowledged.
tip: Be sure to pass the word along to your fellow nursing students, faculty, family and friends to tell them about this challenge so they can help your election area win!
What does your donation support? All donations received are used to support the FNSNA undergraduate scholarship program.

4. Grand Prize Drawing: the following two criteria are required for an individual to be eligible for the drawing:
a. that individual has made a donation ($10 minimum); OR, someone has made a donation ($10 minimum) on that person’s behalf.
b. that individual is enrolled in a school of nursing in the winning election area at the time of the October 25 contest deadline.
5. Donating on Behalf of an Individual: an individual who is eligible for the grand prize drawing is entered into the drawing only once, regardless of the number of donations that person makes, and regardless of the number of donations made on his/her behalf.
6. Donating on Behalf of a State: family, faculty and friends may help an election area to win by donating on behalf of any state they choose. Multiple donations on behalf of one person do not increase that person's chances of winning the drawing; however, those donations would count towards that person's state, thus, pushing their election area towards winning.
