Anise Hayes, co-founder of Detroit-based nonprofit Atlantic Impact, was recently selected as one of three female finalists in the Jeep 6th Man Contest sponsored by Chrysler and USA Basketball.
A production crew flew out from California to help tell the story of Anise and Atlantic Impact in a short two-minute video which features Detroit. If she wins the contest, Jeep will donate $20,000 to a charity of her choice.
What this really means: Atlantic Impact has a 1 in 3 chance of winning $20,000 to go toward improving the lives of at-risk youth.
Atlantic Impact hosted an event at Southwestern High School which highlighted the historical and cultural diversity of the city of Detroit.
Today, June 29, 2012 is the last day to vote.

About the Jeep 6th Man Contest: The Jeep brand is looking for a “6th man” and “6th woman” who demonstrate the qualities of sacrifice, humble spirit, integrity, courage, and leadership every day in his or her community to join Jeep’s partnership with the USA Basketball team. The two winners will each receive a $20,000 donation made directly to the charity of his/her choice, a trip for two to attend a USA Basketball exhibition game in Las Vegas, recognition at the USA Basketball exhibition game, and a USA Basketball jersey. Winners are determined based on Facebook voting and a panel of judges which includes a Jeep employee, former NBA player Jalen Rose, and 2 independent judges.
