Not Your Average Awards Show
Since 1996, DoSomething.org has honored the nation’s best young change-makers, ages 25 and under. Do Something Award finalists have made a significant impact in their cause space and are showing the world how it’s done.
Each year, five finalists are rewarded a $10,000 grant to continue their work, along with media coverage and support from the team at DoSomething.org. The grand prize winner receives -- wait for it -- a $100,000(!) grant to take their initiative to the next level.
Additionally, we honor celebrities who are doing meaningful charity work. Lights, camera, (social) action!
