The members of Maná have been environmental activists for a long time and have a history of supporting causes with their Selva Negra Foundation.

Those eligible must be between the ages of 18-35, high school seniors or graduates, or current college undergraduate, or who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study.  Hurry, though!
