Be Big in Your Community Contest (grant funds)

Hey! What's the BIG IDEA?
We know you have some really great BIG Ideas about making the world a better place! Maybe you have a BIG Idea (or a small idea with BIG potential) that you've been thinking about? Now is your chance to put that BIG Idea into action and win a chance to make it a reality!

The BE BIG in Your Community Contest has awarded over $150,000 in grants so far AND this year we will award an additional $75,000 in community grants* to 30 BIG ideas that best demonstrate Clifford's BIG Ideas (Share, Be Kind, Help Others, Be a Good Friend, Play Fair, Have Respect, Be Truthful, Believe in Yourself, Work Together and Be Responsible).

Scholastic, HandsOn Network and American Family Insurance will work with the winners to bring their Big Ideas to life! Everyone is invited - Families, Teachers, Classrooms or Community Leaders - to submit their ideas now through June 17, 2011.
