Maine faces unprecedented challenges to our economy, education, environment and community values. Young people all across the state are doing amazing work everyday to improve their communities, and we want to invest in these brilliant plans by inviting you to participate in our Launch ME Contest!

All you have to down is fill out the application today or you can  & then e-mail your responses!

Here’s what the contest can do for you:

1) All contestants will get publicity for their project on our website.

2) At the end of March, the public will vote for their favorite projects. The winners of that vote will be invited to our big fat party on April 6th in Portland (lodging and travel support included).

3) At the PARTY, attendees will be encouraged to donate $10 to their favorite projects - and YOU walk home with all the money that you raise.

4) PLUS, attendees will rank choice vote for their favorite projects and the winner will receive an additional $500 toward their work.

Money + Publicity + Community Support = Launch ME
