Two New National Community Improvement Awards Available for 2009
The Nature Hills Nursery of Omaha, Nebraska has launched the Green America Awards to acknowledge nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving their local environment through greening initiatives that incorporate the planting of trees, bushes and shrubs. The winners will be chosen based on their proposed projects that best incorporate the use of plant life.
Nature Hills Nursery will donate a total of $5,000 in plant materials annually to the earth friendly winning projects. The application deadline is April 1, 2009. More information can be found at www.naturehills.com.
Do Something and Mountain Dew Voltage have also announced a new grant program to recognize groups of young volunteers who are working together to improve their local communities. The Power in Numbers program will provide ten groups of friends with $10,000 each to expand or implement their project or idea.
Program teams should consist of three to ten individuals between the ages of 13 and 25 years of age. Grants will be provided through a qualified 501(c)(3) organization.
