Education opens eyes… and doors. For the fourth consecutive year, Maybelline New York is honoring outstanding women who have made a real difference in their communities by working to support educational causes. Each of the ten 2008 winners will be awarded a $10,000 grant earmarked for her educational cause, enjoy a trip for two to New York City for a gala awards event and have a chance to have her cause showcased in a national ad in People, People en Español or Essence magazine.
Do you know someone who has changed lives through the power of education? Why not change her life and nominate her for a Maybelline New York Beauty of Education Award and a $10,000 grant for her education-related cause. You can even nominate yourself!
“Our past awardees are a phenomenal group of women who inspire, motivate, mentor and teach in their communities every day through education,” notes Serena Giovi, vice president, Marketing, Maybelline New York
Past winners have included Oral Lee Brown of Oakland, Calif., founder of the Oral Lee Brown Foundation. Oral Lee adopts first grade classes with the promise of a college education; Abigail Rosin, of New York City, N.Y., founder of Groove with Me, a free dance studio and after school program offering girls enrichment and a safe haven; and Dr. Marie Vazquez Morgan of Shreveport, La. who runs free seminars in her community to educate people about healthy lifestyle choices.
