Yesterday, I received this exciting email:
A nomination was submitted on your behalf for the 2010 Do Something Awards. After reviewing your nomination we want to encourage you to complete the Do Something Awards application. www.dosomething.org/awards
The Do Something Awards identifies exceptional young (25 and under) social entrepreneurs, activists, and community leaders who have made a significant social impact. Do Something Award nominees and winners are the pivotal “do-ers” in their fields and causes. Five nominees will be rewarded with a $10,000 community grant, participation in a live VH1 TV show,media coverage and continued support from DoSomething.org. The grand prize winner will receive $100,000 during the live broadcast.
We have received over 600 nominations, but so far have only recommended 30 of those nominated move to the next step and fill out the award application. While I cannot guarantee that you will be selected as a Do Something Awards Finalist or Nominee, I can guarantee that your application will be reviewed in the internal semi-finalists selection round (typically about 60 out of 700 applications make it to this round).
THANK YOU to whoever nominated CWS for this awesome award! We are honored to be considered!
