The Guerrilla Green Showdown is a three round competition using sustainable resources and major cash prizes to directly empower teens to 'hack their schools green'.
Last year we directly invested over $30,000 to teams of students all over the United States, with an intent to support those who are frustrated with the lack of efficient and healthy transformation in their schools. Teen across the country responded to our call of action with innovative and sustainable design ideas, from school ground irrigation systems to air purifying campaigns, resulting in the beginning of a school-ownership youth movement.
The competition was broken down into a three round, March Madness style challenge, where each round the number of competitors dwindled, and the cash prizes grew.
Not only does this competition show students the importance of inspiring learning spaces, it teaches them how to analyze the existing, and conceptualize efficient solutions that benefit the outcome of their, generally not so compelling, educational experience.
