Do you want to prove to Obama, and to the rest of the world, that your school may just be the greenest campus in America? Do you want to challenge other students to reduce their carbon footprint in order to win up to $20,000?
Of course you do, and to prove your commitment to protecting the environment you should sign up for America’s Greenest Campus contest.
Created by Climate Culture, a new startup that helps people save money and go green, and in partnership with Smart Power, a non-profit marketing organization that supports green energy, this contest pits college campuses around the U.S. against each other to prove their green university mentality.
Here’s how the contest works:
1. Sign up with your school information on the Climate Culture website here
2. Get other students to sign up as well
3. Do your best to reduce your carbon footprint
After you sign up, your carbon footprint, along with everyone else from your school, will be tracked by the website carbon calculator, and on October 5, 2009 the school with the lowest carbon footprint will win!
The leader, as of today, is George Mason University in Virginia.
Oh, and did we mention that there’s even a YouTube video sung by the “Obama Girl” that talks about saving energy and joining the contest? Here it is:
Now that you know about the contest, are you ready to prove to the world that you are a part of the greenest campus in America?
