Google announced during the Timberwolves game on Wednesday night that it had selected five Minnesota nonprofits to receive funds as part of its Impact Challenge. The five winners were selected by a panel of local judges that includes Shawntera Hardy, co-founder of Civic Eagle; Eric Dayton, CEO of Askov Finlayson; and Gersson Rosas, the Timberwolves’ president of basketball operations. Each of the organizations will receive $175,000 to support projects aimed at creating economic opportunity in their communities. In the final stage of the competition, Google is inviting Minnesotans to select a people’s choice winner, which will receive an additional $125,000. Voting began during the Timberwolves game last night and will continue through Feb. 19.
