Grants For Nonprofits Who Are Benefitting From Youth Getting Invovled In Their Community

From The Foundation Center...

Young Community Volunteers Invited to Apply for Do Something Awards

Deadline: March 1, 2009

The Do Something Awards, formerly the Brick Awards, are
designed to provide recognition and funding for young community
volunteers.

Do Something Award Winners receive a community grant,
participation in a special award ceremony, media coverage, and
continued support from Do Something ( http://www.dosomething.org/).

In the 2009 program, five winners will receive a minimum
of $10,000 in community grants and scholarships. (Only
winners 18 and under are eligible for a scholarship of $5,000 and a
$5,000 community grant; winners between the ages of 19 and 25
will receive their entire award in the form of a community grant.) Of
the five winners, one will be selected as the grand-prize winner
and will receive a total of $100,000 in community grants, paid
directly to the nonprofit of his or her choice.

Do Something Award applications go through two stages. First,
the Do Something Award Academy (comprised of former winners)
reads through all the applications and selects the finalists. Finalists are
then flown to New York City for interviews with > representatives
from the Do Something Award Selection Committee.

The five Do Something Award winners will be announced in the
spring of 2009. The grand-prize winner will be announced in the
summer of 2009.

guidelines.
