MTV TR3s and Youth Venture Present the Tu Voz My Venture Contest

"As part of its mission to provide a voice to young Latinos in the United States, and in response to the alarming rate at which Latinos are dropping out of high school, MTV tr3s formed MTV Tr3s Voces, a campaign that aims to empower Latino youth to graduate high school and prepare for college, work, and life.

In partnership with Youth Venture and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, MTV Tr3s Voces will awards grants of up to $1,000 each to groups of young Latinos that have new and creative ideas for after-school programs, organizations, clubs, or other ventures that encourage and help Latino youth graduate high school and prepare for college.

The contest challenges young individuals to take action by forming a team comprised of two or more individuals to conceptualize and implement a project aimed at encouraging Latinos to graduate from high school. The contest is open to groups of two or more individuals who are legal residents of the United States and/or the District of Columbia and who are 13 to 20 years of age at time of entry.

The contest will award grants of up to $1,000 each applicable toward the development and implementation of team projects. Venturas grants will be offered every week until June 29, 2007. In addition, the contest will present a scholarship award of up to $5,000 to each of the top five teams with the most successful projects, as judged by the sponsors (each scholarship award is to be evenly split among team members)."
