Project Green Challenge is a world-wide initiative that encourages young adults to participate in interactive activities that will show them the benefits of living sustainably. The goal is to transition their perspective lens from conventional to conscious living long-term.
Students who have signed up for PGC individually or as a team are e-mailed daily challenges throughout the month of October. These challenges have specific themes (food , fair trade, energy, water etc.) that change each day for all 30 days in October. By accomplishing these challenges, 20 students have the opportunity to win daily prizes. UCCS students who have completed the max amount of points for each challenge have a good chance of being one of those 20 winners out of up to 2,000 to 3,000 students who participate in PGC world-wide.
Contestants that participate in the 30-day PGC have the chance to apply for the Challenge Finals with a short application (“final exam”) as well as a video demonstrating their personal transition from conventional to conscious. Up to 12 applicants will be selected to attend this three-day eco summit from November 29 – December 1 at Green University (the Challenge Finals) in the Bay Area. Finalists will be flown to Green U in San Francisco where they will have the opportunity work together to create innovative ways for social action. A panel of judges will select the Project Green Challenge 2013 Champion. The winner will receive a Grand Prize package of giftcards worth thousands as well as trips across the US. They will also have the opportunity to work alongside other Challengers with Teens Turning Green and partners in the coming year.
