My Fresh Page Project Offers a Chance to Win up to $5,000 for a Community Project

My Fresh Page Project, a national contest run by the YMCA of USA, is accepting entries from individuals and groups to submit a project geared toward improving your community. The Y is a national nonprofit that offers a variety of social services including fitness classes, affordable afterschool care, financial assistance and more. The contest intends to inspire community members to imagine big and small ways to help a community. Submission entries range from community art centers, to mentor programs, to health education classes, to many more fresh ideas.

Community members from across the nation will be able to vote for their favorite idea once a day, now through October 24, 2014.

Seventeen semi-finalists will be chosen based on participants that receive the most votes during the voting period. From those 17 Submissions, a panel of judges from YMCA of USA will then review the entries with the most votes and select ten winners to receive prize money designed solely for the completion of the project in the winning submission. Three (3) Winning Participants will be awarded $5,000, three (3) Winning Participants will be awarded $1,000 and four (4) Winning Participants will be awarded $500, for the completion of their projects.

The judging criteria are as follows:

  • whether the Submission adheres to these Rules
