Project Green Challenge (PGC) is a 30-day global challenge for high school and college students, sponsored by Turning Green (TG), a student-led global movement devoted to education and advocacy around environmentally sustainable and socially responsible choices for individuals, schools, and communities. Students may participate in the challenge individually or in teams of up to four members per school. Each day throughout the month of October, an environmentally themed challenge will be delivered to registered PGC participants by email at 6 a.m. (PT). Each challenge will be live for 24 hours, inviting participants to complete actions and upload deliverables to acquire points and prizes. Deliverables include photos, videos, and text uploaded on the PGC website, as well as across TG social platforms: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube. Twenty prize packages will be awarded daily based on outstanding content.
Deadline: Daily, from October 1 through October 31, for entries
Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of
