Award-winning young adult novelist Justina Chen Headley, Burton
Snowboards, and Youth Venture are co-sponsoring the Go Overboard
Challenge Grant to fund the best youth-led ideas to change the world.
Justina has a longstanding commitment to tie community service
benefiting teens to every single YA novel she publishes.  So in honor of
her new book, Girl Overboard (where a teen finds her true power through
community service), she and her partners are giving away 12 grants,
$1,000 each to inspire teens to become changemakers.  Eligibility:
students ages 12-20 who have an idea to improve their school,
neighborhood, city, country, or the world.  Students need an adult
sponsor, such as a librarian or teacher, to endorse their grant

Deadline:  May 1, 2008.
