  • Projects that will help prevent, reduce and/or eliminate the effects of climate change and global warming (including water degradation)
  • Live music performance for education and outreach
  • Research into prevention and treatment of childhood illnesses
  • Programs that enable youth to think, create, and communicate effectively
  • Programs that support and promote high achievement in music, science, and literature
