From the Wires Amway Launches Positivity Project Contest Aug. 31, 2010–-Positivity is more important than ever as people search for relief from economic turmoil and negative headlines. To recognize and celebrate the impact that positivity makes in people’s lives every day, Amway is launching the Positivity Project Contest. This online program provides an opportunity for individuals to share stories about how the “Power of Positive” has changed their lives or the life of someone they know.
The Positivity Project contest will award 10 winners with prizes to help them further their efforts to share the “Power of Positive.” Winners will be announced at a special ceremony hosted by renowned composer, Intelligence for Your Life founder and Amway partner John Tesh. The grand prize winner will receive a $10,000 Positivity Prize while nine others will each receive a $2,500 Positivity Prize. All entries will be captured and eventually shared online as an ongoing showcase of the “Power of Positive” in action.
“Positivity is a powerful and infectious mindset that can make a real difference to people, communities and companies,” says Steve Lieberman, Vice President and Managing Director of Amway North America. “At Amway, the ‘Power of Positive’ comes to life every day in our products, people and business opportunity. Our Independent Business Owners not only provide for their families, but they partner with the company to give back to the communities in which they live. We’re thrilled to kick off the Positivity Project as one more way to inspire the ‘Power of Positive’ in our society.”

ABOUT THE POSITIVITY PROJECT
The Positivity Project is an extension of Amway’s Power of Positive advertising campaign, which has appeared on TV, print and web for several months now, emphasizing that Amway is a company that has a positive impact on people’s lives.
The Positivity Project is designed to help the “Power of Positive” turn into a movement — from an advertising campaign into something people are excited to learn about and share with others. Through the Positivity Project, Amway will rally people to recognize, celebrate, and embrace positivity as a tangible way to improve their lives and communities.
