Make Your College Green…. Win $10,000

I think that sounds fair.

Brita has invited college students to come up with a proposal to make their campus more Green and change the world…. or at least your campus for the greater good of humanity and future….. I’m sorry I lost my train of thought. Five people will be awarded a grand prize of $10,000.

The deadline is November 14, so you had better start planning. Here is an excerpt from their well-crafted release:

Any undergraduate or graduate student in good academic standing at an accredited college or university in the United States may submit a proposal. Proposed programs should be action-based or should aim to create tangible results towards producing a more sustainable environment. Submissions for the College FilterForGood Eco-Challenge will be accepted until Nov.14, 2008, and the recipients will be announced in January 2009. For more information on other ways to make a difference or to submit a proposal, visit


I suggest getting in touch with your campus’s Greening clubs to see if there are already efforts underway.
