Burton Snowboards are Going Overboard!
Do you want to save the world? Have a cause you feel deeply, strongly for? Got an idea you think can make a real difference? Listen up:
Burton Snowboards and Girl Overboard author Justina Chen Headley, in partnership with Youth Venture, are co-sponsoring the Go Overboard Challenge Grant to find the best youth-led ideas to change the world. What does that mean?
Write up your idea, or gather your friends or even your whole school to jot down your ideas and solutions and send them to Burton. They are giving away $1,000 grants to the ideas they like the best. You then use that grand to make your idea an ACTION! Love this!!
For the guidelines, rules and the how-to on the "grant" writing, go to Burton's Go Overboard site: http://www.burton.com/gobsite/ChallengeGrant.aspx
And feel free to let me know any of your ideas!!
