Have you ever wondered whether it is possible to see the world without leaving your hometown? Come find out at the world premiere of “Around the World in Raleigh,” a short film that highlights the diversity of North Carolina's capital. The Nicholas Sparks Foundation teamed up with International Focus and acclaimed filmmakers Marco Williams and Danielle Beverly to create this short film, in which seven high school students take each other on a tour of places that are special to their heritage. After the premiere, we’ll hear the reactions of the student participants, who will be seeing the completed film for the first time. Refreshments will also be available for purchase.

The film will premiere at 3pm on Saturday, April 18 at the North Carolina Museum of History. Tickets are free, but we request that attendees RSVP in advance by clicking this link.
We are excited to announce that we are now accepting applications to add up to three more schools to our Rural Scholarship Alliance! Our goal is to put together a network of schools to ensure that students across the country have access to a globally focused education that can prepare them for an interconnected world. Our program offers support for schools, teachers, and individual students. Click here to find out more about the opportunity and to apply before the July 15 deadline.
High school students have just over a month and a half to submit their images for our 2015 Student Travel Photography Competition! We’re seeking the best photos from students who have traveled abroad that fit this year’s theme of “equality.” Nicholas Sparks will judge the competition and award a prize of $500 to the overall winner. Click here to see the five prize-winning photos from last year’s competition, and click here to submit your photos for this year before the May 15 deadline.
Our partners at Foundation Enterprises have added bronze and silver charms celebrating The Longest Ride to their collection of Nicholas Sparks-themed jewelry. They also offer charms representing The Notebook, The Guardian, and The Best of Me. Proceeds from the jewelry directly support our educational programs. You can browse the collection online and place an order. In Nicholas’s hometown of New Bern, North Carolina, you can buy the jewelry direct from Hearne’s Fine Jewelry.
Did you know that Nicholas Sparks sends personalized, autographed copies of his books to donors who make a financial contribution to support the Foundation’s programs? For a limited time, we’re celebrating the premiere of the film version of The Longest Ride by offering autographed copies of the movie tie-in edition to anybody who donates $75 to the Foundation. Supporting the Foundation is the only way to get an autographed copy of this edition. Click here to donate today!
