I was recently flipping through a magazine when I came across an ad for the Toyota Earth Day Scholarship Program. I guess the image was compelling enough for me to visit the website when I got home. Toyota Canada Inc. and Earth Day Canada have come together to encourage today's youth to take an active interest in the environment by rewarding Canadian high school students who take part in environmental community service and display academic excellence. The Toyota Earth Day Scholarship program is offered to those who are entering their first year of full-time, post-secondary education and will award $5000 to 15 students. One national winner will be selected from the 15 winners and will also be given a laptop. What a great way to encourage youth to raise awareness about environmental issues! Hurry! Applications are due on January 31, 2009. Read about how you can help the environment.
