Two of four $500 prizes will be awarded in central Minnesota.

There is a “micro challenge” that will award four $500 prizes for the best short-term community projects to protect waters from the pollution found in the leaves, grass and soil that wash into streets.

A grant from the Little Falls-based Initiative Foundation funds two of those $500 prizes for the best ideas coming from entrants in the 14 counties the foundation serves in central Minnesota.

The contest opened Sept. 20, and entries will be accepted until Oct. 11. The winner will be announced Oct. 20. The project must be completed by Nov. 12.
