Deadline: June 1, 2005

The Earth Island Institute (<a href=""></a>), a nonprofit organizations working for the conservation, preservation, and restoration of the global environment, invites applications for the Brower Youth Awards program.

The program is designed to recognize the efforts of young environmental and social justice leaders. The cash prize is not a scholarship, but a reward for past work and present leadership. Recipients generally are encouraged to use the prize to assist in their own education or to further their work. Six award recipients are selected each year.

The award includes a $3,000 cash prize; a trip to San Francisco for the awards ceremony; a three-day Wilderness Encounter; local and national media coverage; and ongoing access to mentors, resources, and leadership development opportunities.

Eligible applicants are individuals aged 13-22 who are residents of the United States or Puerto Rico and who have shown leadership and produced results in at least one of the following areas: 1) Conservation — reducing the negative impacts of the use of natural resources and getting more out of what is used; 2) Preservation — saving places, plants, animals, cultures, and Earth-friendly traditions that cannot be replaced if they are destroyed; and 3) Restoration — repairing damaged land and water so that it can function ecologically and support the health of human communities and/or native wildlife populations.
