The South Loop | Greener Together contest is now closed for 2013. Stay tuned for developments from the winning project, Ride Your Bike for a Week – by Delia Bleahu and Kelly Smoots of Youth Guidance of South Loop Elementary.
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.
