Starting Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018, Google will start using its Chrome browser to reshape the web by eradicating ads it deems annoying or otherwise detrimental to users.

Search giant Google is seeking proposals from Colorado nonprofits to create economic opportunities in their communities with $1 million in grants as part of its Google.org Impact Challenge Colorado.

The deadline for the proposals is Sept. 20. A panel of five judges will pick five recipients of $175,000 grants and Colorado residents will vote online for one of the five to receive another $125,000.

The judges are Blessing "Yemi" Mobolade, small business administrator for the city of Colorado Springs; Joe Garcia, chancellor of the Colorado Community College System; Kelly Brough, CEO of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce; David Miller, executive director of the Barton Institute of Philanthropy and Social Enterprise at the University of Denver; and Katherine Archuleta, founding partner of Dimension Strategies.
