Do Something Invites 2006 Brick Award Applications

Each year Do Something (www.dosomething.org), a national not-for-profit organization honors six outstanding leaders age 18 and under and three outstanding leaders between the ages of 19 and 25 who take action that measurably strengthens their communities in the areas of community building, health, or the environment. Each of the 18 and under winners is awarded a $5,000 higher education scholarship and a $5,000 community grant, to be directed by the award winner to the not-for-profit organization of his or her choice. Winners in the 19 to 25 category each receive a $10,000 community grant. All winners receive pro bono services, and all winners attend the annual Brick Awards Gala event in New York City, where their accomplishments will be celebrated. In addition, Do Something works closely with Brick winners to generate local and national media coverage of their work, and to spotlight what young people can achieve. Applications are due November 1, 2005. Apply online for a Brick Award at www.dosomething.org/awards/brick/.
