Nick Cannon - Increase Your Green!
TeenNick chairman Nick Cannon is teaming up with DoSomething and HP to challenge teens to find new and innovative ways to conserve energy and reduce waste in their schools.
The new Increase Your Green campaign is encouraging teens nationwide to “green” their schools by developing creative plans to engage their classmates and address environmental issues at school.
In addition to traditional green projects, such as recycling programs and community gardens, DoSomething.org is encouraging teens to explore ways to use technology to go green. “The environment is all over the headlines and at the top of everyone’s mind. It’s important for teens to know that their actions locally make a huge difference on this global issue,” Nick shared in a press release.
The eight-week campaign will run from February 15 through Earth Day on April 22, is expected to engage over 100,000 teens. A panel of judges, including Nick, will evaluate the entries based on creativity, innovation, reduction in waste, energy saved and number of students involved. The best use of technology will be an important criterion for selecting campaign winners. The winners will receive up to $5,000 in funding and an HP Artist Edition notebook to carry out their plan.
Thanks to support from the National Grid Foundation, the campaign’s founding sponsor, Increase Your Green will offer additional prize opportunities of up to $1,500 to students in the National Grid Foundation’s service territory.
