The folks at Google are feeling generous! In line with the celebrations for their 10th birthday, Google have launched Project 10^100 (“ten to the hundredth”) and you could be the winner.
Google wants you to submit a unique idea that would help as many people as possible. They will then choose the best idea and commit $10 million to bring it to life.
Andy Berndt, Google Creative Lab Managing Director explains more:
“Never in history have so many people had so much information, so many tools at their disposal, so many ways of making good ideas come to life. Yet at the same time so many people (in all walks of life) could use some help, in small ways and big.
To mark our 10th birthday and celebrate the spirit of our users and the web, we’re launching Project 10^100 a call for ideas that could help as many people as possible, and a program to bring the best of those ideas to life.”
There are little restrictions on your ideas; however they do need to fall into one of the following categories:
Community: How can we help connect people, build communities and protect unique cultures?
Opportunity: How can we help people better provide for themselves and their families?
Energy: How can we help move the world toward safe, clean, inexpensive energy?
Environment: How can we help promote a cleaner and more sustainable global ecosystem?
Health: How can we help individuals lead longer, healthier lives?
Education: How can we help more people get more access to better education?
Shelter: How can we ensure that everyone has a safe place to live?
Everything Else: Sometimes the best ideas don’t fit into any category at all.

So if you have a brilliant idea, then let Google know and they might just help you make it a reality.
