How cool is this? Whirlpool wants to reward moms who are identifying challenges and coming up with creative solutions every day. To recognize these momtrepeneurs, the 2008 Whirlpool® Brand Mother of Invention Grant will provide winning moms with prizes ranging from a $5,000 grant and a Whirlpool® side-by-side refrigerator with water filtration to a $20,000 grant, Duet® Steam or Cabrio® washer and steam dryer pair, a Whirlpool® dishwasher and a $3,000 stipend for a new home office. Talk about jump starting your business!
Whirlpool added a "Green" category this year. Eligible ideas must meet one of the following criteria: minimize the impact on environmental resources, use recycled/natural materials or are an environmentally friendly product/service. The entry from both the traditional and green categories that receives the highest overall score will become the grand prize winner.
Entries must be postmarked by July 31, 2008. For more details check out Whirlpool Mother of Invention Grant.
