Hey, Students! Win $5K, Dorm Makeover and More

by Jennifer Berry

The new Project Green Challenge calls on all high school and college students to improve themselves and the environment with one “challenge” each day for 30 days, starting Oct. 1.

These challenges will be based on a daily theme and come complete with resources, tips, a glossary, experts, videos and more. There are even green, greener, and greenest levels, which students can complete and share with their peers on ProjectGreenChallenge.com utilizing Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The amazing prizes up for grabs include a $5,000 college scholarship, $1,000 Whole Foods Market gift card, weekend trip for two to southern California, bicycle courtesy of Natracare, full eco-dorm or room makeover, a year’s supply of Nature’s Path breakfast and snack foods, organic and ethical clothing, natural body products and more.

Ten finalists will be flown to San Francisco for an educational and inspiring two-day eco summit, called Green University, where leaders like Josh Dorfman and Rachel Sarnoff will be speaking. And, if students don’t want to go it alone, groups and even entire schools can sign-up to participate.

“I want to inform and inspire, showing my peers that small changes in our daily actions really can have a positive effect on our health and the environment,” says Erin Schrode, co-founder and spokeswoman for Teens Turning Green, who created Project Green Challenge.Teens Turning Green is a student-led movement devoted to education and advocacy around environmentally and socially responsible choices for individuals, schools and communities.

Earth911 is proud to be an official Media Partner for Project Green Challenge. We’ll be participating in daily challenges throughout the campaign, so consider yourself one-step ahead of the competition!
