There are only a few days left to vote for a finalist in the League of Young Voters's Launch Maine competition.
The contest, which aims to both spur and highlight community involvement among young Mainers, will award $500+ to the winning youth-led project. Although $500 isn't a ton of money (finalists do have the chance to earn more at the April 6th party/winner announcement), Launch Maine has garnered a ton of interest, with more than 30 teams submitting their projects, which address topics such as home weatherization, kids and the arts, organic smoothies, physical activity and health, and alternative transportation.

Voting ends on March 28 (that's this Wednesday). Five finalists will be invited to the League's event on April 6th to talk up their idea in person and hopefully win the whole thing.
