Ashoka's Youth Venture, who was involved in bringing you the Staples Youth Social Entrepreneurship Competition (news entry here), has now teamed up with MTV Switch Campaign. They are launching the Dream It Do It Challenge in search of the most innovative and creative youths that are working to create a cooler or greener planet. The competition is open to young people between the ages of 12 and 24.
To learn more about the competition and enter your idea for a chance to win $1000 to get your project started and possibly be featured on a new MTV show in 2009: http://mtv-venture.org/switch
And, if you also know of any young environmental entrepreneurs who may be interested in this, please pass this on!
Dream It. Do It.
