Tell us who should be a 2015 NationSwell AllStar. Join the conversation by using #NationSwellAllStar or #nbcuopenpossibilities

The nomination period for 2015 NationSwell AllStar is over. If there’s a local nonprofit that you think deserves to be recognized, please share NBCUniversal Foundation’s 21st Century Solutions annual grant challenge opportunity. Read more about the grant here.

 

We’re inspired by the people who are rolling up their sleeves — to spur advancements in education and environmental sustainability; to make government work better for citizens; to engage more people in national service; to support our veterans and their families; to revitalize our economy and advance the American dream; and more.

That’s why we’re partnering with NBCUniversal to support the greatest innovators who are tackling some of the nation’s most critical issues. We want to hear from you. Tell us who you think the next biggest changemaker in America is.

We will name six innovators NationSwell AllStars for 2015. For each, we will create a mini-documentary highlighting the work he or she is doing and driving impact to the cause. In November, AllStars will be flown to New York City to meet with thought leaders and influencers to gather advice on how to propel their projects forward. They will also have a chance to win $10,000.

Meet the 2014 NationSwell AllStars here or watch this video to learn more about what we’re looking for.

Spread the word by using the hashtags #NationSwellAllStar and #nbcuopenpossibilities and by visiting facebook.com/nationswell.

The deadline to enter is June 15.

The 2015 NationSwell AllStars partnership is part of NBCUniversal’s unifying vision for social impact: Open Possibilities. Focused on uniting media, technology and community to ignite passion around social issues, unleash creativity and connect us to something bigger, Open Possibilities represents what is possible when we push the limits of what technology and media can achieve to move communities and people forward.

By submitting a nomination, you agree to receive email communications from NationSwell and from NBCUniversal.
