Hi Clayton,
Thanks for adding your idea! We'd love to learn more about how it relates to opportunities for youth in the communities where you are piloting it! 

Hi Ali, 

Nice to hear from you. When it comes to our winners selection, it's not so much where you went wrong as it is how our winning ideas were a good fit for our portfolio and the work that our team does best! 

Unfortunately, given resource constraints, we're not in a position to give individualized feedback to everyone. However, one thing that came up in discussions of your idea is how challenging it can be to scale the logistics of an idea like this.  You've articulated your plan quite clearly, but fleshing out this component of your idea would really help people envision a path to sustainability.  

Broadly, we think that the work you are doing is great... and we encourage you to keep at it!
