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!

    Hi Jaera!      sisihastwobunnies is right. It's perfectly fine for you to have a crush, but you're a little young for a "love life." Don't worry though! Someday, if it's meant to be (Ha ^-^) you'll find the one who's just right for you. Until then, it's great to have good guy friends -and in years to come if one of those friendships develop into something more, then props to you (:  Future advice: You have to understand that feelings aren't always mutual. You may like someone and they'll see you only as a friend -or vice versa.  THIS IS OKAY.  It may hurt, but that's just proof that you'll have to move on. Something better is ahead,  you simply haven't gotten there yet (: Having patience can be hard, but it's worth it. Good luck! -And I hoped this helped!                                    Wishing you the best,                                             american_brit ^-^

    I want to own a pony  You want to own a pony it was dirty and smelly  All animals has their own unique smell and its how animals smell. You was feeling ill so it could of smelt even worse I felt low in the class You was ill and its understandable that you was feeling awful I feel really nervous about going tomorrow for a proper riding day. Me suggestion is to ask the stables for the horse you would feel more comfortables riding I think it's 8 hours 15 minutes!  I knows you think there wont be breaks but there will be and probably about every hour or so.  Dont worry about this. Yay you got all jodphurs and boots and your all set. Me suggestion is go along tomorrow and relax and enjoy it.  Sure it does costs money to go there but your parents wouldnt be organising it if they hadnt got the money to pay.  If you doesnt like it after you tried it then say you dont wanna go again. It does sounds epical though and good luck for tomorrow  :angel

    I went to own a pony day but I got the start of a short illness and I was scared and it was dirty and smelly and I felt low in the class but I was oldest on the biggest horse and now I feel really nervous about going tomorrow for a proper riding day. I think it's 8 hours 15 minutes! That's like, school with no break or lunch and four extra lessons! I acted excited cause I got rosettes and lollies and mum took me out for jodpurs and boots but now I feel a bit sick and tight and wobbly even though it was fun on wednesday and I have 3 sort of friends there already and the horse I rode, Bob, was great! Mum's in Wales and having a nice time so I don't want to dull her and I talked to Dad but he said 'don't worry I don't know what mum will think sorry'. I don't want to say no or quit later on cause: I'll feel bad to Bob The stables is just up the road so when I see the owner (who's real nice to me) or the instructor (who's at my school) I'll feel bad for saying no I don't want to join you I feel like mum will be disappointed cause she used to adore riding and had 2 horses and a pony I always begged to ride since I was 3 and so it's been over a decade! It costs cash. Cash, cash, cash. From mum and dad's pockets. Cash.

You already have traits, quirks, gifts, and talents put in you by God, and you just need to "put yourself out there" to discover what they are and what you can do with them. Don't worry so much about knowing who you are right now, you'll find that out in time. Just try to become the best you can be with what you have." Exactly ^-^ I don't think I could explain it any better. "_ALizB_" wrote:So pretty much what y'all are saying is, give it time?  Basically. Take time to learn about yourself. *What do you like to do? *What're dreams? *What're you scared of? *What makes you laugh? *What upsets you? *Are you happy? Why or why not? *What would you like to change? Can you? If so, what're you going to do about it? *Etcetera *Etcetera Life's a time to ask questions. You have to understand though, it doesn't always offer clear answers -but they're there; not always easily seen, but always there.

    Ello and Im sorry for saying this but from what you has said so far you hardly knows either of them.  You like them cos of how they look. Me advise is get to know both of them and be the friends first and see what happens if something happens and how your feelings evolves. Take your time and good luck :) :love
