Over at ReGeneration.org, we just launched a follow-up to the “What Does Green Mean to You” Graffiti contest on Facebook. The theme of the new global contest will step beyond ”What Does Green Mean to You?” and head to the next step: what actually “Going Green" means. We’ve evolved the categories by which the entries will be judged to get some different responses.
The new categories are:
- Best Overall
- Most Inventive Green Technology
- Sustainable Architecture
- Most creative vision of a green future
- Show us how you can improve the environment now
After the submission round is complete, users will vote on their favorite entries. The deadline to submit entries will be Monday, April 14, and user voting will begin the next day and end the following Monday, April 21st. A panel of judges will decide on the winners from of the entries receiving the most votes. The winner in the “Best Overall” category will receive a Green Dell Inspiron laptop! The other category winners will receive Dell backpacks. The winners will be announced on Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22. Be sure to explain your art in words when prompted because another Green Insprion will be awarded to the entry with the best overall text.
Sign up for the ReGeneration movement while you’re at it. There's a cool new section on the site called Café Re which encourages dialogue and self-expression…you can chat with others participating in the contest and view the latest art being submitted by Graffiti users across the globe. Like Dane mentioned in his recent post, look for this image on the right job section of the ReGeneration.org site to join. Clicking on the image below will take you to the main site:
On a related note, a long time ago, I had seen this post from Shel Holtz where he reacted to a report that many companies block employees from Facebook and other social media sites. We were one of those companies until last week. Now, we can open up this contest to Dell employees worldwide.
ReGeneration's challenge to us: Share your ideas about what going green really means through graffiti, text and Cafe Re's new live chat. Exchange thoughts with other participants by posting in the comments section. The world will be watching.
