We support entrepreneurial leaders whose courage and innovation improve the lives of people and the world around us. Later in 2013, the Westly Foundation will award several prizes to young innovators in California with creative solutions to community problems. We invite nominations and applications from young innovators who meet our selection criteria. We will award up to four $20,000 prizes through a competitive selection process. Because we think it’s important to recognize and encourage social entrepreneurship among youth at all levels, two of the prizes will be given to current high school students. Two additional prizes will be awarded to university students or professionals age 28 or younger.
