Disney Summer of Service grants offer young changemakers $500 to gather their friends and turn creative ideas into projects that will positively impact their communities - making them healthier, greener and stronger.
Three hundred and forty winners will be awarded individual $500 grants to implement their projects and select grantees will have a chance to be recognized by Disney|ABC Television Group or their local ABC affiliate.
Grant applicants must be between the ages of 5 and 18, and live in the United States.
Legally, if you are younger than 13, you must have someone older than 13 prepare and submit the application for you.
