Do Something and Grammy Foundation Invite Young People to Use Music to Improve Communities
Deadline: December 15, 2008
Do Something (http://www.dosomething.org) and the Grammy Foundation (http://www.grammyfoundation.com) are offering a total of $25,000 in Key Change Grants to young people who have an idea or existing project that uses music to make a difference in their local and/or global community.
To be eligible, the applicant must be 19 years of age or under, and must be a U.S. or Canadian citizen. The project must be youth-led and -driven, creative, and demonstrate an original idea for solving problems and creating change. Projects must also strive toward tangible results and measurable impact, focus on problems in communities, and — whether one-time event or ongoing program — must promote diversity and seek to make lasting change in the target community.
Five Grand Prize Winners will receive a $3,000 community action grant and an all-expense paid trip to the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on February 8, 2009. Twenty first prize winners will receive community action grants of $500 each.
See the Do Something Web site for complete program guidelines.
