We're excited to announce the Design Ignites Change 2009 Implementation Award, which will grant $15,000 to a design concept that has the ability to ignite change within their local community. The parameters are broad, but the concepts must address a pressing social need within a community, be implemented within that community and deliver positive, measurable results.
The award is available to creative professionals and universities engaged in youth mentoring programs around social issues or universities using design thinking to address social issues. The eligibility seems a bit tricky, so be sure to read up on the guidelines.
Deadline: December 31, 2009
