Call For Nominations For The 2008 Br!ck Awards

Call For Nominations For The 2008 Br!ck Awards

“The Oscars of youth service awards…”-CNN.

Since 1996, The BR!CK Awards have honored the nation’s finest young world-changers. Winners represent the best in their field or issue and are rewarded with a huge community grant and a special televised award ceremony.

Know how athletes have the Olympics and singers have the Grammy’s? It’s about time world-changers have their special night too.

The goal of the BR!CK Awards is to shine the spotlight on these amazing leaders and give them the recognition and applause normally given to athletes, actors, and certain “personalities” or socialites who will remain unnamed…You could say that The BR!CK Awards ARE THE ANTI-AWARD SHOW. Instead of asking “who are you wearing?” the show asks “what are you doing?” Celebrities are included as presenters, not honorees.

Former winners include a homeless teenager-turned lawyer who sued New York City for failing to provide adequate support to mentally ill incarcated persons. Another past winner created an international not-for-profit organization that builds schools and provides scholarships to children in war-torn African countries. Want to meet more former winners and hear their amazing stories?

The PRIZE

Nine winners will receive a minimum of $10,000 in community grants and scholarships (if applicable). Of those nine winners, 1 will be selected by a national, online vote as a Golden BR!CK Award winner. That Golden BR!CK Award winner receives a total of $100,000 in community grants. The BR!CK Award community grant money is paid directly to the not-for-profit of the winner’s choice. Only winners who are age 18 and under are eligible for a scholarship of $5,000 and a $5,000 community grant (total= $10,000 BR!CK Award).

Winners age 19-25 receive their entire award in the form of a community grant.

The TV Show

In 2007, The BR!CK Awards made their national debut on The CW Network. Seen by over one million viewers nationwide, The 2007 BR!CK Awards marked the FIRST EVER televised award show about making the world better.
