WTOP announced today that it will sponsor an online contest called “Click for a Cause” which gives D.C. area non-profit organizations the chance to vie for one of three $10,000 grand prizes. Runners-up will each win $5,000 worth of commercials to advertise their organizations on WTOP.

From the press release:

The prizes will be awarded in three categories, based on an organization’s annual expenses – large (over $13.5 million), medium ($3.5 – $13.5 million) and small (up to $3.5 million).  Winners are based on the highest number of votes (likes) received during the contest…

Voting will take place April 21 through 5 pm on Friday April 25.  Voting is accomplished by visiting the Click for a Cause page at wtop.com/clickforacause, and clicking “like” on the charity you wish to vote for.  Listeners must have a Facebook account to participate and people can vote for as many charities as they wish, but only once per charity.
