Best Buy Children's Foundation Seeks Applications for Youth Technology Grants<http://e.foundationcenter.org/a/hBRhCiSB8ixfdB8yOsQAAAl0x4-/rfpb17>

The Best Buy Children's Foundation is accepting applications from local and regional nonprofit organizations working to provide teens with places and opportunities to develop twenty-first century technology skills with the potential to inspire their future education and career choices.
Community grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded for program activities such as computer programming, digital imaging (photography, graphic design, videography), music production, robotics, and gaming and mobile app development. Grants are intended to support local efforts and are reviewed for consideration by Best Buy teams across the United States. The average grant amount is $5,000.
To be eligible, organizations must be tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. In addition, organizations must provide direct services that build technology skills in teens between the ages of 13 and 18, and be located within fifty miles of a Best Buy store, Best Buy Mobile location, Best Buy Distribution Center, Best Buy Service Center, or Best Buy corporate campus.
Before submitting a full application, qualified applicants must complete an eligibility quiz<http://www.easymatch.com/bestbuygrant/> by July 1, 2013.
