Making a difference?
Do you design projects that enable students to make a real difference in their community? Or maybe you know of students who are launching their own real-world projects outside school? Either way, your students could be eligible for up to $10,000 in seed funding to support their innovative ideas. Make Your Difference is a brand-new idea from Vancouver, B.C., but entries are not limited to Canada. Founder Kevin Lynch says there are no geographic restrictions. Entries are open until Feb. 15, 2008. A selection panel will narrow the pool of contestants, and then the online community will vote for winners. So it's a chance for students to test the power of viral marketing and social networking, too.
