Win a Trip to the Obama Inauguration with Your Commitment to Change

How are the first 8 days of your New Year's resolutions going? Do any of them involve serving your neighborhood, your community, or even your nation? You could win a trip to the Obama Inauguration by submitting your commitment to change to the Case Foundation's online civic engagement campaign, Change Begins with Me.

All you have to do is go to and in 250 characters or less, complete the phrase, "Change begins with me. I commit to..."

If you win, you get:
  • two tickets to the Inaugural Ceremony & the Hawaii Inaugural Ball
  • three-nights hotel stay
  • airfare for you and a guest to the Nation’s Capitol
  • a Flip video camera
The last day to apply is 3pm EST on January 12, 2009. The contest is open to people who reside in one of the 50 U.S. States, the District of Columbia, or Puerto Rico. You can see other contest details at:

This campaign is just the beginning of the Case Foundation's work supporting civic engagement. They will also be hosting an online chat and Q&A series highlighting government and non-profit leaders at the helm of change efforts, and launching monthly mini-grant competitions for individuals with innovative ideas about simple ways to connect with others in their communities, talk about what is needed, and take action together.

You can keep up with Case Foundation news through their blog Let's Talk, or newsletter.

  1. I hope that the changing of the administration will encourage all to do a little more to change because change comes in little bits from many, not the from looking for others to do it for you...
