Founded in 1857, the The Atlantic has throughout its history championed the power of big ideas and continues to shape global debate across print, digital, events, and video platforms.
As part of its mission, the media company, in partnership with Allstate, has issued a Call for Nominations for its 2019 Renewal Awards. The annual program recognizes nonprofits across the country for their innovative, grassroots approaches to driving change in their communities and bringing progress to the country. Now in its fourth year, this national competition was created to celebrate the social innovation demonstrated by thousands of nonprofits that are finding creative solutions to America’s most pressing problems.
Nominees will be evaluated based on an innovative solution (a new idea for tackling a difficult problem), impact (how are nonprofits measuring and proving their ideas work?), and scale (how can an idea be scaled and replicated in other communities?). Once nominees are selected, the public will be invited to vote on the solutions they believe have the most promise for their communities.
For this year’s awards, five winners will be selected to receive grants of $20,000 and to attend a national summit hosted by The Atlantic in spring 2019.
See The Atlantic website for complete program guidelines and nomination instructions.
