The Be Unique Challenge


The Be Unique Challenge is our favorite thing we do all year.

When it started, our idea was to honor a deserving person in our Clay/Platte County community with the hope of seeing the challenge grow. We wanted to inspire other businesses to give back to their communities and spread goodness.

We began taking nominations for the 2021 Be Unique Challenge on January 15th and will continue to accept your submissions until February 28th.


Do you know someone that impacts the community in a positive way? It’s the person who is always giving 100%, no matter who is watching. They invest their time and talents to improve the lives of others. It’s just who they are.

It is a coach who never gives up, a teacher who thinks outside the box, a foster parent whose doors are always open, a first responder who always answers, or a health professional that never stops helping. They are one-of-a-kind. They are unique. They are who this challenge is about.


This year, we get to paint three houses! The first house will be the Be Unique Challenge Winner, the second will be the Michael Wells Choose the Wretch House Winner, and the third will be the winner whose house is painted by Affordable Painting.

Michael and Katie Wells were the first recipients of the Be Unique Challenge back in 2019. Katie, a first-grade teacher, and Michael, a fire fighter, are perfect examples of people who inspire and improve our community. At the time, Michael was battling cancer and we thought that choosing a second winner in his name would be a great way to honor his memory.


The Be Unique Challenge would not be possible without the help of our partners.

  • Guild Content – All of the promotional and video work behind the Be Unique Challenge is done by our local marketing friends at Guild Content.
  • Sherwin Williams – The paint for the winning homes is donated by Sherwin Williams. They are donating paint for three (3) houses this year!
  • Affordable PaintingYou read that right, three houses worth of paint. Unique Painting will be painting two houses and Affordable Painting will be donating services to paint a third!

We are seeing the challenge grow bigger each year! In 2021 we will be able to recognize three winners and we are even seeing the challenge spread into other communities.

Here at Unique Painting, we care about this community and the people in it. It is our honor, along with our partners, to give back to someone who has already given to others.

We’re also lucky enough to stand beside others in this community that care a lot too. Our other partners in this effort are Squid’s Pressure Washing, Premier Grounds, Chelsie Dillon Real Estate, Courier Tribune, Answering the Call, Blue HVAC, Photography and Wall Stylings, and First American Home Warranty.

There is no better time to recognize the deserving, one-of-a-kind heroes in our community. Go to our website to nominate someone for the Be Unique Challenge today.

“I can’t say enough great things about Chad and his crew. They were punctual throughout the entire project and very attentive to detail. This is the first time I’ve hired a painter and they far exceeded my expectations.”

Professional, did an excellent job. Our walls were in pretty rough shape, did great repair. Will definitely use again.
