Deadline: March 1, 2011
The Do Something Awards (formerly the BR!CK Awards) identifies exceptional young social entrepreneurs, activists, and community leaders who have a significant social impact. The Do Something Award nominees and winners are the pivotal “do-ers” in their fields and causes.
For this year’s awards five nominees will be selected and rewarded with a $10,000 community grant, participation in the Do Something Awards TV show on VH1, media coverage, and continued support from DoSomething.org. Of those five nominees, one will be selected to win the Grand Prize, a $100,000 grant, which will be announced during the live broadcast.
Quantity of applications is not a concern. Rather, we want to identify the “best-in-class” activists, leaders, and social entrepreneurs age 25 and under. Applicants must be citizens or residents of the U.S. or Canada and must apply by March 1st, 2011, although applying earlier is strongly encouraged.
Nominations for the Awards may be completed at www.dosomething.org/awards.
