Guardian Life Insurance Invites Entries for Girls Going Places Entrepreneurship Award Program

The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America is accepting entries for its Girls Going Places Entrepreneurship Award Program.

This annual initiative is designed to reward the enterprising spirits of girls between the ages of 12 and 18. In 2010, Guardian will award prizes to fifteen girls who demonstrate budding entrepreneurship, are taking the first steps toward financial independence, and make a difference in their schools and communities.

To be eligible, a nominee must be between the ages of 12 and 18 as of December 31, 2009; be enrolled in middle school or high school; and be a U.S. legal resident.

Prizes totaling $30,000 will be granted to three top winners and twelve finalists to further their entrepreneurial pursuits or save for college. Submissions received after the deadline date will be entered in the 2011 competition.

Visit the Guardian Life Web site for complete program guidelines and entry forms.
