Funding is intended for adults, and students between the ages of 13 and 19, who have made a difference through projects and programs developed outside normal work, school, or extracurricular activities. There are two types of contests:

2019 G2 Overachievers Grant:

  • The Contest is intended to recognize individuals who have overcome challenges to achieve extraordinary success beyond their typical workday obligations with the goal of improving the lives of others (“Overachievers”).
  • The Grand Prize will be a grant awarded to a single Overachiever to enable him or her to continue their achievements and expand upon the success for which he or she is being recognized by the Contest Entities. The Grand Prize Winner will also have a meet-and-greet session with Priyanka Chopra.

2019 G2 Overachiever Student Grant:

    • The Contest is intended to recognize students who are changing the world, their school or community through their selfless determination of giving back in a unique and impactful way (“Overachievers”). The actions of these Overachievers extend beyond the classroom and their extracurricular activities and make the world a better place.
    • The Grand Prize will be a grant awarded to a single Overachiever to enable him or her to continue and expand upon the success for which he or she is being recognized. TheSponsor will also award funds to the Grand Prize Winner’s school to help their community educator overachievers, too. If the school declines the award, Pilot Pen will retain the school prize.
