We are turning it over to you all to pick the winner of the biggest grant to date! This year we are asking that all applications be submitted by August 1, 2012. On September 1, 2012, we will announce seven (7) qualifiers selected by the SportDOG Conservation Committee. At this point, we will turn the voting over to you. You all will have the chance to vote for your favorite of these seven projects, and at the end of the contest, the applicant with the most votes will be awarded a $25,000 grant. The project with the second most votes will receive a $5,000 grant. This is a great opportunity to garner support for your application, your organization and your conservation goals. Get those applications in soon, and please check back often to find updates on the applicants and contest.
SportDOG will also be awarding one (1) $1,000 youth grant to lead support to and recognize a group or individual whose efforts are focused on a better tomorrow for wildlife. Learn more about the SportDOG Brand Conservation Youth Grant program here.
