Dates and Deadlines

All three items below, in Starlink Extra this month are linked to specific dates and deadlines, as are four of the websites found under Other Opportunities.

Worried woman looking at clock

Did you know that a deadline was once (in the 1800s) a boundary line in a prison that prisoners could cross only at the risk of being shot?

Or that (in the US in the 1900s) it once also meant an urban district of saloons and brothels?

To meet, miss or overshoot a deadline these days does seem incredibly pale by comparison! :-)

So ... to accompany the date-specific events in this month's issue, we've included some resources on coping with deadlines. Though a couple are written with tongue firmly in cheek!

Finally, in addition to GirlZone from last month's Starlink, there are six more websites for or about girls.

We hope you'll find something of interest among them all!

Your Eyes Only
starextra090704 (31K)
Your Eyes Only is a grant opportunity for young people 12 -15 years to celebrate their community by submitting a creative entry showing their community through their eyes.

Ten successful applicants will nominate a community group working with young people in their community, for example a school, youth group or sporting group, to receive a donation of up to $3,000.

This donation would then be used by the community group to further its work by either purchasing much needed equipment or adding funds to an existing program.

Entries close 17 September. Application forms and more information is available by calling 03 9670 5436.

Girls Can't WHAT?

The Last Word
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
