Be Sure to Apply for the $1,000 “Hand Up for Social Good Award” Before Midnight on January 31, 2013

Applications for the “Hand Up for Social Good Award" are rolling in and there are only a few more days before the deadline. The process is quick and takes only about five to ten minutes. 


By way of reminder, the “Hand Up for Social Good Award” from Your Mark On The World is our way of finding and recognizing a great small organization that is having a real impact in the world. Any organization, whether or not it is registered as a non-profit, may enter the competition. Applicants must have had less than $100,000 of revenue in 2012.

A panel of Forbes writers will be the judges. They will select ten finalists based on two criteria: 1) Mission and purpose, and 2) Impact. All ten finalists will be briefly profiled in a Forbes article on about February 7, 2013.

Readers will then choose the winner based on the same two criteria. Voting will run from about February 7 through February 28. The winner, the organization with the most reader votes, will then be profiled in a Forbes article and will receive the $1,000 prize!

If you know of an organization that should be profiled, be sure to encourage them to apply for recognition here before midnight mountain standard time on January 31, 2013.
