Amway North America is looking for 10 outstanding youth change-makers from across the U.S. and Canada, for the Amway Who Cares Challenge: Youth Leadership Contest. The company wants to give a voice to teens and young adults, and inspire them to amplify their impact on the world.

The contest will award 10 winners $10,000 each, to give to the nonprofit organization of their choice. Winners also receive support from a mentor at the international charity and educational partner, Free The Children, to help them realize their vision.

Over the next 10 weeks, Amway will be collecting contest entries from teens and young adults ages 13 to 22. Applicants will be asked to share their stories of leadership in local community service.

"We're pleased to offer a fresh opportunity to young people passionate about service," said Tanios Viviani, regional president for Amway North America. "The contest will allow young people to share their story and continue on the path to making the world a better place."
