The competition is organized in part by the Community Service Initiative. - "The Community Service Initiative is a group from Salem State University which was created to make the world a better place. The organization volunteers locally, as well as nation wide, helping those in need. One of the major service opportunities the organization takes part in is a service trip with Habitat for Humanity. This past year the group volunteered in Beaumont, TX to help build a home for a family in need. Many parts of Texas, including Beaumont, have been destroyed in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. The Community Service Initiative is organizing a relief trip where students will be sent to Texas to help with the post-storm relief. Students are looking forward to helping those affected by this natural disaster and in need of a helping hand."
