The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America says the deadline for its eighth annual Girls Going Places Entrepreneurship Award Program is Feb. 15, 2008.

The program, which is part of the Guardian’s Women’s Initiative, recognizes teen-age girls who demonstrate exceptional entrepreneurship.

Guardian, New York, will offer three top scholarship prizes for $10,000, $5,000 and $3,000, and 12 finalist prizes of $1,000 each.

Guardian is asking adults to nominate candidates by submitting essays that explain why the girls deserve the scholarships.

A panel of judges will award scholarships to nominees who have demonstrated entrepreneurship or financial acumen; have taken the first steps toward financial independence; make a difference in their schools or communities; and show potential for future success.

The 2006-2007 first place winner, Stephanie Brown, set up Ohio’s first student-run credit union, Oakwood Universal 1 Credit Union.
