Yves Rocher Foundation Accepting Applications for Women of the Earth Awards

Deadline: October 31, 2006

The Yves Rocher Foundation (<a href="http://www.yves-rocher-fondation.org/">http://www.yves-rocher-fondation.org/</a>), the philanthropic arm of the Yves Rocher beauty company, is accepting applications for the Terre de Femmes "Women of the Earth" Awards from the United States. The awards are designed to honor women who make the world a greener place through their actions and programs.

Three U.S. winners will be chosen and awarded cash prizes of $7,000 for first place, $5,000 for second place, and $3,000 for third place. Prize money will be distributed to organizations that are exempt from taxation pursuant to the U.S. Internal Revenue code. Individuals not associated with such an organization may designate a not-for-profit organization concerned with the protection or promotion of the plant world to receive the cash award.

The first-place prize winner will be entered in the International Women of the Earth Awards with other first-prize winners from other countries. She will be taken to Paris, France, to attend the award ceremony on March 8, 2007, and could win the international prize.

Any woman age 18 and above who is working on a program that benefits nature and humankind is eligible and encouraged to submit an application.

Application forms for applicants from the U.S. (and other countries) are available at the Yves Rocher Foundation Web site.
