Go Green Challenge

This contest is open to you and your students...Good luck!

Dear Professor,

Upon speaking to [Mc Gill School of Environment] Director Marilyn Scott about the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, and our recent focus on empowering youth with tools to make a difference, your name came up as a professor who would be interested in finding out more about the $100,000 Go Green Challenge. Please consider taking the time to pass on this information to your colleagues and students. Another option is to implement the 2nd ever $100,000 Go Green Challenge as a class assignment. As of now, we are still waiting for the official rules and electronic poster to send off to students. Once we receive this we will send over an email with all of the details.

This year, the theme of the contest will be Urban Sustainability. Open to Canadian university and college students, the challenge requires a maximum 4,000 word essay with creative, workable plans for promoting greener communities. The four winning teams each receive $25,000 for their green ideas and recognition as a future green leader within the community. (More details to follow).

Thank you for taking the time to read this email. Please let me know if you are interested in integrating the $100,000 Go Green Challenge as a class assignment or if you have any other ideas to help us promote the Challenge. We can send you:
•    Posters to hang in the halls and your office
•    Power Point slide to discuss in class
•    Electronic email blasts to forward to your students
