Past Recipient

The 2021 Fox Scholarship recipient, Delia Cote, created the Post-It Project, a simple idea with a huge impact. Delia and her father volunteered for years at Hope for New Hampshire Recovery, and as the years went on Delia wanted to find more ways to help. She remembers saying to her dad, “I just want to give everyone a hug and let them know they’re loved and appreciated.” This prompted the Post-It Project, which started with 600 post it notes and four hours of work creating a wall of encouraging and positive messages for the community members. Above it was the simple message “Take what you need or leave one behind”. Within days nearly a quarter of the notes were replaced with new ones and it only escalated from there. Now, two years later, the Post-It Project is still running strong and helping encourage community members every day. Read more about her project here.
