Get Creative for Your Favorite Cause – and Win Up to $5,000 for AmeriCorps Alums

October 6, 2009

The Chronicle of Philanthropy encourages you to match wits with Hollywood — and gain the opportunity to win cash prizes for good causes.

Inspired by the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s “iParticipate” week of volunteer-focused television programs, The Chronicle’s VolunTV Challenge invites you to demonstrate how you would portray volunteerism in your favorite TV shows. (Think making Lisa Simpson an AmeriCorps member… and then starting an alums chapter…)

To enter the contest, submit a video or written text showing how you would incorporate themes that feature volunteers for your favorite nonprofit… and we’re thinking this is a great way for you all to get creative for AmeriCorps Alums!

The Chronicle will award donations to the nonprofits chosen by people who create the three winning entries.

The judges include nonprofit experts as well as other people involved in the philanthropic world, such as the actress Ashley Judd, a spokeswoman for Population Services International; Arthur Coddington, a senior official at the Craigslist Foundation; and Todd de Lorenzo, chief of staff at the Motion Picture Association. They will pick the three top contest winners, and the entries will be featured on the web site and in a print edition of The Chronicle.

The Chronicle is eagerly awaiting your entries, so start creating ideas now!
