In addition, they will receive a Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR camera and lens package, $10,000 in cash prizes to support their cause and press and media exposure for their very important cause. In addition, four finalists will receive a Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR camera and lens package, an abbreviated video production about their cause and $2,500 in cash prizes to support their cause.
