RENO, NV (KOLO) Voting is open for the $30,000 NV Energy Foundation Power of Good Giveaway. More than 85 nonprofits statewide that are helping youth and young adults ages 12 to 24 through diverse and inclusive programs are eligible, and public votes decide the winners.

NV Energy says, "Diverse programs celebrate the differences of the people in our communities – inclusion creates an environment of mutual respect, trust and commitment so that all individuals can contribute based on their unique talents and backgrounds."

Nonprofits have a chance to receive $15,000 in southern Nevada or $15,000 in northern Nevada. First place winners will be given $10,000; second place $3,000; and third place $2,000 in each northern Nevada and southern Nevada.
