THE J. Amado Araneta Foundation urged youth organizations to join its Spark-a-Change challenge, which it made bigger this year.

The program aims to create a platform for the implementation of projects that will spark positive social change around the country and at the same time help develop future leaders.

Spark-a-Change 2022 is open to all Filipino youth organizations and groups, with members ages 15-30. The organization must have an endorsement from or is accredited by a school, religious community, barangay or nongovernment organization.

Eight winning entries will be selected with a total pot prize of P100,000.

There will be four winners per category.

Category A is for projects that will need a seed fund of P5,000 for implementation.

Category B is for projects that need a seed fund of P20,000.

The project was launched last May 12.

Applications will be accepted until the 31st of the month.

The top twenty qualified entries will be announced on June 10.

The twenty qualifiers will undergo a two-day online Ideation Camp on June 18 and 25.

Day 1 will focus on improving project proposals and action plans while Day 2 will be dedicated for pitching final project proposals before a panel of judges.
