Nominations of Young Female Social Entrepreneurs Invited for Gladys
Marinelli Coccia Awards

Youth Service America
 is accepting nominations for the first Gladys Marinelli Coccia Awards to
recognize two young female social entrepreneurs whose initiatives serve the
common
good. The awards were created in memory of Gladys Coccia, who began her
entrepreneurial career when she was a young girl in West Virginia and later
became
a very successful businesswoman in Washington, D.C. 

To be eligible for the award, nominees must be between the ages of 14 and 17
on January 1, 2010; reside in the United States; have started her own social
enterprise or organization; be supported by contributions of at least $1,000
(cash and/or in-kind); and have a business plan, including an itemized
budget.

Special consideration will be given to nominees from West Virginia and
metropolitan Washington, D.C. Self-nominations are accepted. 

The award includes $2,000 for the awardee's social enterprise and travel,
lodging, and registration expenses to the 
National Service Learning Conference
 in San Jose, March 24-27, 2010. The awardee will serve as a spokesperson
for YSA's initiatives, will be invited to serve on the executive board of 
Girls Helping Girls,
and will be provided access to YSA's resources to support and expand social
