The World Challenge LogoFor the 7th consecutive year the World Challenge is searching for grassroots community projects that promote sustainable development through innovation and original thinking. Their mission is simple: to reward small businesses which have found solutions to some of the world's most pressing problems.

If you have what it takes, they would like to hear from you. Please check their website and fill in an application form. You have until the 19th of June, at midnight. Their judging panel will select the best 12 entries to be filmed by BBC World News and featured in a special ad series in Newsweek magazine.

The public vote will then decide who deserves to win.

2010 World Challenge Winner: The Only Way is UpProjects can be entered under six different categories: community welfare & enterprise, health & education, sustainable farming, energy, water, and environment. The winner will receive a grant of $20,000, with two runners up each receiving $10,000.
