NetAid Global Action Awards to Honor U.S. High School Students Fighting Global Poverty

Deadline: May 15, 2005

NetAid ( <a href=""></a> ), a nonprofit organization that educates, inspires, and empowers young people to fight global poverty, is accepting applications for the NetAid Global Action Awards, which are designed to honor U.S. high school students who have taken outstanding
actions to fight global poverty.

Honorees receive $5,000 for their higher education or a charitable cause of their choice, and are recognized at an awards celebration in New York City. In 2004, the program honored four young honorees whose work included building a school for girls in Afghanistan, providing vital medical equipment for rural communities in Uganda, and improving the lives of street children in Vietnam and child laborers in Latin America.

High school students living in the U.S. who have organized and led a project that has directly impacted people living in poor countries or raised awareness in their own communities about global poverty are eligible to apply.

See the NetAid Web site for complete program information and application procedures.
