By Kids for Kids (BKFK) is a youth empowerment company that gives kids the opportunity to create great ideas and inventions for other kids to use. Now, they've launched four innovation contests and if you enter by June 30, 2008, you could walk away with a grand prize of $10,000! Read on to find out all the details!

"Advertise Your Cause" Media Challenge

Let the world know what social issues matter to you the most by creating a clever visual, print, or web advertising campaign. The campaign that's the most powerful and has the most impact will be awarded a big fat sum of $10,000! As well, the winner will receive national media exposure for their PSA.

Akitas to Zebras (A2Z) Animal Challenge

If you're an animal lover, then this is the contest for you. Whether you've invented a cool new toy for your pet, come up with an ingenious way to improve an animal's life, or want to help save an endangered species, your fabulous idea could win you $10,000 plus a trip for two (you and a parent or legal guardian) to Washington, DC to visit a wildlife agency!

CosmoGIRL! Mind Your Own Business Challenge

Calling all aspiring female moguls! Here's your chance to create a new entrepreneurial concept for a product or service in America! In addition to winning $10,000 in seed money from BKFK to put your business plan into action, you'll also get media attention and entrepreneurial support. Sorry guys, but this contest is only open to the girls.

Design Squad Trash to Treasure Contest

This challenge is pretty self-explanatory - get your hands dirty by turning trash into a piece of treasure! To compete, you must pick at least two trash items that you can recyle, reuse and re-engineer into something new and resourceful. The winner will walk away with a grand prize of $10,000 and have the opportunity to build a prototype of your design at Continuum, an award-winning international design and innovation consultancy.

  • Make sure to submit your entry by June 30, 2008 via the BKFK website at www.bkfk.com. Good luck to all of you!

    Well you won't want to volunteer because that's unpaid.  Your profile says you're 11 which means you can't get a real job but you can babysit (you'll need first aid training for this), or you can pet sit or do yard work. Those are good jobs to have at your age.

    Maybe your overrating her personality while underrating yourself. Girls extremely like confident men so start working on your self esteem first because it stimulates interest to get to know you more especially on the romantic context and don`t forget to just be yourself so that you will know if she accept you to who you are and don`t let the "ideal boy" standard of the society bring you down. Remember that real happiness can be achieve when you are true to yourself so don`t mind what other people think of you and stop comparing yourself to the boys around her. Embrace your imperfections and wash away your insecurities and maybe she`ll like you back ;)

    Considering your age, it is normal that your parents might not accept it in case he likes you and the feeling is mutual and you must understand them. This is time when you need to focus in your studies and prepare for your future career and not for your future husband. You are still very young and trust me, you are still emotionally unprepared for this one heck of a roller coaster ride of emotions. Know the difference between loving that person and loving the feeling that you are in love. ;)

I am already back in school, I no longer have crutches thankfully. Also, i'd like to point out that they don't have social media, or at least, i'm not aware of it and I am out of school for two weeks for Christmas. Crushes are annoying lol. I have never been in a relationship either which makes things so much worst.
