Do Something Announces “Increase Your Green” School Competition
Deadline: December 15, 2008

Do Something is inviting America’s middle and high schools to reduce their carbon footprint this fall through the “Increase Your Green” competition.

Participants must make concrete efforts toward reducing the environmental impact of their school during the eight-week competition. All initiatives must be youth-designed and -led.  A representative from each group must submit an online report of the school or club’s actions to save energy, reduce waste, and
raise awareness during the competition.

Winners will be chosen based on the impact of their school’s actions during the competition. The main judging categories are: 1) energy saved; 2) garbage reduced, recycled, and reused;  3) number of people involved/impacted; and 4) innovative quality of actions and ideas.

The competition is open to middle and high schools.

Participating schools are eligible for a first-place prize of $1,500, a banner, plaque, and eco-friendly gift bags. Three second-place prizes of $500 each will also be awarded. Winners will be featured on the Do Something Web site and in local press.

Students should register their club or school to receive an “Increase Your Green” action guide with tip sheets and materials (e.g., stickers, posters, flyers) to help launch the competition at their schools. The competition opens October 13 and closes December 8. The deadline for online submission forms detailing action taken during the competition is December 15, 2008.
