Young Inventors International is pleased to be a network partner in Technology for a Better World, an opportunity for fifty teams of young innovators age 13-18 to develop and implement solutions for positive social change.
Ashoka’s Youth Venture and the Best Buy Children’s Foundation are looking for up to fifty teams to support through a combination of advisory services, seed funding, fundraising tools, webinars, and networking opportunities. Plus, the top five teams will win exciting grand prizes – trips to Washington D.C. to further develop their ventures at Youth Venture’s headquarters and to be recognized at the Jefferson Awards, meeting prominent politicians and sharing their stories with the media.
Apply by May 9, 2011 in order to be considered for the opportunity to join Youth Venture’s community of more than 4,000 “ventures” – sustainable initiatives, organizations, clubs, or businesses that benefit our community or planet.
