Want to win $10,000 for your dream?

Give Your Dream a Second Chance   

Have you always wanted to use business to do good? Kick-start a non-profit, turn your side hustle into a day job, or launch a big idea that’s been brewing inside you for years? It’s time to rediscover that dream. 

After an incredible response last year, we’re excited to announce our second annual Daydreamer Contest, where one winner will get $10,000 to chase their dreams, no matter how big or small. Applications are open through January 6th. 


When does the contest end?

Our contest comes to a close at midnight on January 6, 2024. So make sure you get your applications in before then! Hit the “Start” button above to start filling out your application. The winner will be announced in early 2024.

What types of projects do you support? 

We don't have specific guidelines for what types of projects we will consider because we want to remain open to a special idea that comes our way. We hope that your project supports a very important personal goal of yours, no matter how big or small that dream may be.

Can I reapply if I applied last year? 

Of course! Just because your project wasn't chosen last year, it doesn't mean it's not an amazing idea. If you're really passionate about it, we'd love to consider it again. We just ask that you focus on one project rather than submitting multiple applications.  

Can anyone submit an application? 

We welcome applications from US residents only. Must be 18 years or older to enter. Please submit one application per person. 

Who won the contest last year? 

Last year's winner was Sarah, founder of Paca Botánica, a cold process soap inspired by Mexican botanicals. Sarah makes all her vegan and organic soaps by hand in small batches and is pursuing her dream of putting Mexican skincare ingredients on the map through luxury self-care products rooted in community and culture. Learn more about Paca Botánica and Sarah's Mission.

When will the winner be announced?  

The winner will be announced in early 2024. We review every single application that comes our way, so we can't say exactly how long it will take us to review them all. We'll reach out to the winner directly, and then we'll announce the big news by email and on our social channels. If you haven't heard anything, we probably need a little more time to review applications. Feel free to reach out to support@seavees.com or DM us with any questions.
