Google is celebrating its 10th birthday this year and is looking back on a decade of technological advances and its direct impact on the way information is distributed, read, understood and found around the world.
The ability to change the world by doing good is something Google takes seriously, literally. “Project 10 to the 100th” is Google’s new brainchild, calling for ideas to “Change the World by helping as many people as possible”. To make sure this happens, Google has committed $10 Million to implement the winning idea.
Project 10 to the 100th kicks off immediately and all idea submissions must be entered by October 20th. Google will pick 100 ideas from the submissions and post them as semi-finalist for voting to take place on January 27th, 2009.
Once five finalists have been selected for funding, an advisory board will begin the process of identifying the organization(s) and proposals that are in the best position to help implement the selected ideas.
Submissions must fall into one of the set guidelines of the Project and must define how many people the idea would help, how urgent is the need (of the idea), can the idea be implemented within a year or two, and how long will the impact from the implemented idea last.
