Every year, DoSomething.org presents the Do Something Awards to honor young adults under 25 who are making a difference in their communities and across the world. Five finalists are chosen and are invited to appear on the televised awards show in August that airs on VH1. DoSomething.org awards four of the finalists with $10,000 grants and one Grand prize winner with a grant totaling $100,000. Out of more than 1000 applicants, Danny Mendoza was chosen as one of the 12 Semi-Finalists. Interviews for the finalists will be conducted in New York City from June 8th to the 12th. The awards will be announced on VH1 in late August.
