Completed your new year’s resolutions — or given up on them already? Either way, here are new green challenges you can take on this month to win cash, fame and green gear:
>> Re-envision the gas station — Draw or create what a typical fueling station will look like in the future for GOOD’s contest. The good news for not-so-great drawers: GOOD says “a bad drawing of a great idea will be better than a beautiful rendering of something uninspiring.” The winner will get $1,000; second and third place winners will get $500 and $200, respectively. You gotta act fast though, because the deadline for submissions is March 10.
>> Design an Earth Day T-shirt for organic clothing company bgreen Apparel, whose comfy clothes I’ve reviewed here. The winner will get a $150 bgreen gift card, a free T-shirt, design credit (a printed bio inside the T-shirts), and the happy knowledge that all proceeds from T-shirts sold with the design will be donated to Los Angeles-area environmental nonprofits. The submission deadline is March 24.
>> Get a cushy internship with the Sierra Club. One lucky intern will be chosen to “travel around the country hiking, rafting and enjoying the outdoors with the Sierra Club’s youth programs” while vlogging his or her adventures during the eight-week internship. Plus, the intern will get $2,500 and $2,000 worth of gear from The North Face and Planet Explore. You must be at least 18 years old. Get your application in by March 31.
