Vote early and often (and by April 28) for one of these local nonprofits ...

Five organizations are vying for a $5,000 grant and recognition as "most innovative" in addressing growth and diversity issues in the Triangle. You and I will be voting on it at the Triangle Community Foundation's website — short videos are posted there for each contender.

I went to the website thinking I'd cast a quick vote for Builders of Hope, a very cool organization I wrote about last year (a BOH email pointed me to the competition). But, doggone it, the other finalists include Sparkcon, one of my favorite groups, and the Community Reinvestment Association of North Carolina (CRA-NC), yet another. The Institute for Emerging Issues, a Jim Hunt creation that looks at the big picture, and the Kramden Institute, an on-the-ground group that puts computers in the hands of needy kids, round out the field.

Tough choice.
