Now Accepting Nominations: 2019–2020 Cosmic Hero Seed Funding

The Sidekick Collective is on a mission to invest in youth who do what superheroes do: help others first, make right what is wrong, and protect the vulnerable. But first, we need to find them. That is where you come in!

The Cosmic Hero award recognizes and invests in students with big ideas for creating change in their schools and communities. This year’s awardees will receive $500–$2000 grants to support their changemaking projects.

Do you know a 9th–11th grade-student or group of students who are making a difference? Submit a nomination by Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 11:59 pm PST. (Self-nominations welcome!)

Cosmic Hero nominations are reviewed by The Sidekick Collective’s Hero Development Bureau on a rolling basis. Select nominees will be invited to submit a project proposal for consideration. 2019–2020 Cosmic Heroes will be announced in early 2020.
