“Go Green” Contest Offers Cash Prizes

The School of Business and Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) will sponsor a “Go Green” event in conjunction with Global Entrepreneurship Week Nov. 17-23.

“Trash Cans on Parade,” a trash can painting contest promoting the “Go Green” cause offers participants the chance to win a cash prize. 

The trash cans are supposed to represent everyone’s “Go Green” views and creativity is encouraged. Trash cans will be judged on originality/innovativeness, relatedness to the “Go Green” theme and the strength of the statement.

Trash cans must be submitted with an entry form, which can be downloaded from http://sife.truman.edu/home, by 10 a.m. Nov. 20 in Georgian Room A of the Student Union Building. They can be any size and may be submitted by individuals or groups. Profanity or explicit content will result in immediate disqualification.

The top 10 entries will be displayed around campus, with the top three receiving cash prizes. First place will receive $100, second will receive $50 and third will receive $25.

Other “Go Green” events included a YouTube competition, where participants were asked to create an effective, creative and persuasive video that motivates and encourages others to take part in environmentally sustainable practices.

Videos were to be uploaded to YouTube by Nov. 17 with judging to take place Nov. 21.
