The Adobe Foundation has launched the Adobe Youth Voices Aspire Awards, a new online youth media competition and festival that showcases creative media from teens ages 13-18. Entries produced by teens who demonstrate creativity in using video, print, and/or audio will be accepted through April 20th. Winners’ prizes include Adobe software, Dell laptops, Samsung HD camcorders, and a grant. MTV, Dell, and Samsung have joined with Adobe Youth Voices as supporting partners of the Aspire Awards.

CSC has won a Gold ranking in Business in the Community’s 2012 Corporate Responsibility Index, the United Kingdom’s leading benchmark of corporate responsibility. CSC’s Environmental Program was awarded the Carbon Saver Gold Standard for all of its UK operations, scoring 95 percent. Also, CSC set up a Mentoring in the Community program for employees to provide business skills to charities and non-for-profit organizations. Business in the Community’s CR Index helps companies to integrate and report on business impacts in society and on the environment.
