50 States for Good Competition Announced

Tom’s of Maine is inviting nominations for the 50 States for Good competition. Now it its sixth year, the competition recognizes nonprofit organizations and projects committed to addressing pressing community needs. This competition is a great opportunity for communities to recognize local and grassroots efforts that are driven by residents and local stakeholders. 

Chosen by a public vote, finalist organizations will receive $10,000 in support of a current or future project or event. In the past, the 50 States for Good has awarded funding for community playgrounds, sustainable nature trails and homeless shelters. A total of 51 organizations – one from each state and the District of Columbia – will be selected as finalists. Any person with a valid email address can register as a member of the Tom's of Maine online community and cast a vote.

To nominate a project, an official representative of a nonprofit organization must submit a brief essay that describes the organization’s work and the scope of the proposed project. Eligible finalists must be nonprofit organizations operating in the United States or the District of Columbia.
