Other prizes consist of 5 $1,000 first prize grants. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. Contest ends  June 23, 2013.

I have fond memories of Clifford from when my kiddos were little-- it was such a positive and sweet cartoon. What a wonderful idea!

I just entered my Girl Scout troop in the contest. We have six girls working toward their Gold Award and are devising six different 80-hour sustainable community service projects to be completed over the next few years. This could help us out in the fundraising department. Thanks!
