Earth Island Institute's Lorax Challenge

As part of their New Leaders Initiative, the Earth Island Institute is sponsoring the Lorax Challenge. Groups of two or more young adults (ages 12 – 20 from the United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico) are invited to share their ideas for saving the planet. Entrants must submit an “action plan” that includes items like a description of the project, the names of the team members who will put this plan into action, a draft budget, and a timeline. You could win $1,000 to turn your dream of saving the planet into reality! Five grand prize winning teams will be awarded trips to the University of Florida to attend a five-day environmental boot camp. The deadline for entry is midnight, May 31, 2008. Good luck!
