Vote for NC Big Sweep!

North Carolina Big Sweep has been chosen as one of six finalists for a national online voting competition. The finalist with the most votes will win a $30,000 grant, while second place will receive $10,000 and third place will receive $5,000. The remaining projects will each receive $3,000. 
Last year, the value of our volunteer time was more than one million dollars! Still, it costs money to provide cleanup supplies and support for all 100 counties in North Carolina. The money we receive will go towards improving water quality in all 100 counties in North Carolina by coordinating a statewide cleanup and by implementing a litter awareness campaign after the cleanup to help prevent littering. To commemorate Big Sweep’s 25th anniversary, 25 cleanup and litter prevention tips will be publicized.
Please show your support by voting for North Carolina Big Sweep at www.rivernetwork.org/2011-millercoors-watershed-grants-contest before March 20th. Winners will be announced on March 24 at www.rivernetwork.org.
You can only vote once, so please pass this on to family, friends, and colleagues and encourage them to VOTE NOW!
