How far can blogging take you? Very, very far apparently.
Last year BlogHer announced scholarships to attend the annual BlogHer annual conference for women using their blogs for activism. Among the winners was Standtall, the prolific blogger at the award-winning The Activist blog. On The Activist, Standtall or Toyin Ajao (as she's otherwise known) discusses issues related to making the world a better and more equitable place for women. At BlogHer '09, the activists shared their work and passions with the conference attendees.
The program was such a success that BlogHer has decided to make this an annual initiative. You can nominate yourself or a deserving woman who is using her blog to change her community for good for the BlogHer 2010 International Activist Scholarship Program.
Scholarship Winners Will Receive:
* A full 2-day conference pass to BlogHer '10
* Round trip airfare to and from New York, NY for the BlogHer '10 annual conference
* 2 nights stay at the New York Hilton during the conference
* The opportunity to present their work during a prominently-scheduled session at BlogHer '10
Deadline: January 31, 2010
