Washington, DC ( — Popular philanthropist and entrepreneur Jay Cameron is hosting the online “12 Days in 12 Hours Productivity Success Challenge” & “The Secure the Bag Scholarship Application Challenge” on Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 and May 16th, 2020 from 9 am until 9 pm.

To assist families with maximizing their productivity while observing COVID-19 “stay-at-home” orders, Cameron has created this virtual success challenge. The online challenges are hosted by Maximum Impact Success Academies and focus on accomplishing twelve days’ worth of task completion within a twelve-hour timeframe. This free event encourages participants to choose specific tasks to complete during the online challenge.

As a part of the main event, Cameron is inviting high school and college students to participate in the “Secure the Bag” Scholarship Application Challenge. With massive student debt plaguing families and billions of scholarship dollars left unclaimed annually, the goal of this challenge is to complete as many college scholarship applications within twelve hours.

Speaking enthusiastically on the new challenge, Jay Cameron emphasized the need to be most productive during this time and to incorporate our high school and college students in the process.

Jay comments, “My goal is to reach people who want to get things done and to make the most of their time before things settle into our ‘new normal’. The overwhelmingly positive feedback from our previous 12-hour success challenge inspired me to continue with the event. The most popular task was cleaning years of cutter, which was followed by completing or creating online courses, focusing on organizing financials or papers, studying, and a host of other projects. The online group support encouraged everyone to maximize their time.”


He continues, “In our initial challenge, adults over the age of 30 were the primary attendees. I saw the opportunity for our youth and young adults to participate and make it a family affair. I’m excited about adding the scholarship challenge because it could be a game-changer for many families. The possibility of securing funding for college can make a difference for many students.”

The launch of both success challenges comes at a time when people all over the world are facing “stay-at-home” and “social distancing” mandates in many areas. The creation of this online event is to address multiple challenges by encouraging maximum productivity during this time. Anyone can register for free at
