Do Something Awards: Nominate a Young World Changer

Do you know a young person, 25 and under, who is tackling a problem and changing the world? Why not nominate him, or her for a Do Something Award?

Up to five nominees will be rewarded with a $10,000 community grant, participation in a VH1 televised show, media coverage, and continued support from DoSomething.org. The grand prize winner will receive a $100,000 community grant. You can apply, or nominate a world-changing young person at DoSomething.org/awards. Applications close March 1, 2012.
