Deadline: March 22, 2010
The makers of Pine-Sol cleaners, a product line of Clorox Company, have launched the 2010 Make a Powerful Difference Contest, which will award grants online to women who are helping improve their communities and are making extraordinary change.
One grand-prize winner will receive $10,000 to make a difference for their community or cause, while an additional nine finalists will each receive $1,000 to help support their initiatives. Since 2007, when the Pine-Sol Powerful Difference program first started, the company has awarded dozens of grants to over 80 “difference makers.”
To enter this year’s contest, submissions can be made online at the program’s Web site. All entries must include a brief essay on how the entrant is making a powerful difference in her community. A panel of judges will then select the ten Powerful Difference Maker finalists based on originality, creativity, and relevance to theme. The general public will then vote for the grand-prize winner.
