Scholastic’s “Be Big in Your Community” Contest

This contest from Scholastic applauds and promotes so many assets:

BE BIG™ in Your Community!
Are you an individual or a community group doing great things to help others?
Would you like to turn your little idea into a big idea?

From now until June 26, 2009, Scholastic’s “Be Big in Your Community” Contest is accepting entries. Here’s your chance to submit your own BIG idea!

The BE BIG! campaign is designed to communicate that small, simple actions can make a BIG difference. The campaign invites everyone, big and small, to take action and raise awareness of how Clifford the Big Red Dog’s® BIG IDEAS (Share, Play Fair, Have Respect, Work Together, Be Responsible, Be Truthful, Be Kind, Believe in Yourself, Be a Good Friend, Help Others) can make the world a better place.

As a volunteer, school or community partner, you could enter for a chance to see your BIG Idea implemented with a $25,000 community grant!

11 finalists will be selected by a multi-tiered judging process:
· One entry will be honored with a $25,000 community grant
· Ten entries will be honored with a $2,500 community grant

All projects will be executed with the help of Scholastic and HandsOn Network local affiliates!
