BBC World Challenge 2010 Invites Nominations for Grassroots-Level Project Awards

BBC World News and Newsweek in association with Shell have launched the sixth annual World Challenge competition to identify and honor projects or small businesses from around the world that have shown enterprise and innovation at a grassroots level.

The 2010 Challenge invites nominations for innovative projects or ideas that demonstrate an entrepreneurial spirit working for the benefit of the community while adopting a responsible approach. Nominated projects should demonstrate the innovative use of technology or an invention; should increase investment in the local community; and should take a responsible approach toward the environment. Nominations may be submitted in the categories of community welfare and enterprise, health and education, sustainable farming, energy, water, and environment.

The first place winner of the challenge will receive a grant of $20,000, and the second and third place finalists will each receive a grant of $10,000.

The grants are awarded to projects/small businesses for their own use and furtherance of their enterprise only.
