What is the South Loop | Greener Together Contest?

This year, for the 5th anniversary of our Greener South Loop Awards, we will be awarding a $1000 cash prize to implement a winning proposal that engages folks to go GREENER TOGETHER in the South Loop.

The South Loop | Greener Together Contest will award the money to winners of the most engaging and green community project for the South Loop. Let’s break that down. . .

What’s “engaging?” – a project that lots of folks will actually participate in.

What’s “green?” – a project that makes an environmental impact (and  contributes to the City’s Sustainability Plan).

What’s a “community?” – people who have something in common, such as: living, working, teaching/learning, or playing. Your neighbors, co-workers, fellow students/school family members, club members…You get the idea.

To sum it up, the Winning Project will be well-thought out, with a clear environmental focus, a way to actively engage community members, a budget, and … a four-month implementation timeline. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SEE CONTEST REQUIREMENTS.

The winning prize of $1000, funded by our Contest Sponsors, will be awarded to implement the project.
