How Can You Help?

NextGen is not just about winning a contest, it's about mentoring young people and their innovative ideas that can make a positive difference in the world by utilizing mobile phone technology resources.


NextGen welcomes active involvement and support from a wide diversity of industries, community organizations, educators and civic-minded leaders around the world.

The following are some of the ways YOU, your schools, organizations or companies can help realize the exciting and substantive impact of NextGen:

  1. Publicize NextGen Awards Contest, both internally and externally through your websites, organizations, employees, activities, etc.
  2. Showcase NextGen Award winners and their innovative ideas.
  3. Become a NextGen mentor to help NextGen winners expand on their ideas and personal potential. (Click here for Mentors Corner.)
  4. Dedicate web pages and links for youth oriented educational information featuring quality of life challenges and examples of how mobile phones and people can make a difference.
  5. Tell us about your ideas, problems, and solutions that YOU think could be solved through use of mobile phones. Even if you can't enter the current awards contest, we'd love to hear your ideas!
