Through Your Lens: School Facilities in America

Students, teachers, and anyone else with an inside view of our nation’s schools: don’t miss out on this opportunity to photograph what you’re proud of, stuff you’d like to see changed, and anything in-between. The 21st Century School Fund, Critical Exposure, and Healthy Schools Campaign hope that your perspective will click with enough elected leaders to start improving the quality of school buildings. Prizes include being featured in an exhibition in Washington, D.C., as well as a book and online gallery, and a digital camcorder. Deadline to submit is March 7.

YouTube’s DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards

For the fifth year in a row, the superstar video site is calling on nonprofits of every size to show off all the hard work they did last year. The prizes will have you reeling: $10,000 in grants from the Case Foundation, free registration to NTEN’s 2012 technology conference, a Flip Video pack, and your video featured on YouTube’s homepage. Deadline to submit is March 2.
