The Westly Foundation is seeking entrepreneurial changemakers to apply for the Westly Prize for Young Innovators of California, which will award $25,000 cash prizes to innovators under age 28 with novel solutions to community challenges at home or around the world. Innovations must be prototyped and scaleable, and the innovators must live, work, or attend school in California, or have a residence in California but attend school elsewhere. Non-profit, for-profit, or hybrid ventures are eligible, provided they evidence a strong social mission. Students as young as high school are encouraged to apply. Applications are due October 15, 2017, and winners are selected following a Demo Day for finalists on January 20, 2018 in Silicon Valley. Learn more here.
