One of SFYP Wicid Editorial Members has entered this fantastic competition and needs your support!!!!!!
Martyn David (wicid editorial):
“A vote for me is a vote for £18,000 to help Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people in South Wales. If successful, the awarded money will go towards my existing project ‘Bridges’ which is a new and exclusive programme in Rhondda Cynon Taff that works with young LGBT people. This grant would allow us to hold workshops in schools and community centres and organise regular social events for other LGBT high school students who feel alone, confused or unaccepted.
Follow the link to “Back the Idea” you can vote as many times as you like by completing challenges for further events
With your help this project could be massive!!!!!!!!!!
The Stake info:
The Stake is a unique competition that gives you the chance to decide how £100,000 is spent AND allows you to turn a bright idea in to a reality. What are you waiting for?
Using Facebook you can enter the competition by either pitching or backing an idea with the chance of making it a reality. Either way you will get one stake, which you can use to back your favourite idea – even if it’s your own! By completing a number of challenges you can increase the number of voting stakes you have (there are 6 stakes in total to be earned).
Ideas could be anything, from the heart warming to the hilarious, whether it’s a street wear start-up, a new school skate ramp or a major charitable donation. Expert advice will be given throughout the competition from experienced and savvy mentors.
The top 20 ideas with the most stakes by 23 December at 11.59pm will be shortlisted and judged by a panel from Channel 4 and Barclays.
Up to six winners will be announced in January 2012. Each winner will be given up to £20,000, along with support from Barclays’ mentors and youth engagement agency, Livity, to make their ideas a reality between January and March.
