funding opportunities for young social entrepreneurs

Ashoka Youth Venture has launched two new contests supporting social entrepreneurship for young people.  The @15 Challenge, in partnership with Best Buy, offers 15 social entrepenerurs the chance for $10,000 in seed money.  Participants submit entries and the public votes.  In addition, the Staples Youth Social Entrepreneurship Competition offers several different prizes up to $1,000 for each business.  These are both great examples of crowdsourcing applied to business competitions.  Also check out Ideablob , the original crowdsourcing business idea competition.
