    United States

    YMCA of the USA is accepting entries from individuals and groups for its third annual My Fresh Page Project competition. Through the competition, the Y will award a total of $20,000 in support of small ideas that impact communities in big ways. Community members from across the nation will be able to vote for their favorite idea once a day, now through October 24. A panel of Y judges will then review the entries with the most votes and select ten finalists to receive support to help make their idea a reality. Applicants may submit their projects in one of three prize categories  (i.e., $5,000 prize, $1,000 prize, and $500 prize). Any project submitted by an individual or a group that benefits a community is eligible for consideration. Visit the Y website for complete competition guidelines.
