Do you know a teenager that’s striving to improve his or her community? Are you a young writer that’s hoping to inspire others around the world?
The Responsibility Project by Liberty Mutual is collecting stories from teens ages 13-17 who plan to use their summer break to “do the right thing.” Be it participating in a charity event or organizing a community clean-up, teens can enter the Responsibility Project For the Win contest by filling out an online form and writing an essay describing a personal “responsibility project” (in 300 words or less) at

Submissions will be accepted through August 31, 2010, and winners will be announced in September.
On behalf of each of the five winners selected, Liberty Mutual will donate $500 to an approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Winners will also have their entries featured on and be invited to guest blog more about their experiences on the Responsibility Project website.
Best of luck!
