Green Economy Scavenger Hunt: One Week Until We Have a Winner
OK, so as of the time of this writing, we’ll still be waiting to see if Barack Obama or John McCain wins the White House in a week. But, we will know another winner: the winner of the Red, Green & Blue/Reframe It Green Economy Scavenger Hunt. At this time next week, one participant will have snagged the $1000 grand prize and a guest posting opportunity on RG&B, a runner-up will have won $100, and two more participants will score $50 each.
And, just as some are saying about the presidential race, the Scavenger Hunt is tightening up: we’ve seen big growth in participation. Some of the more interesting finds since our last post:
- There’s an active discussion about a post at Osmosus claiming that affordable fossil fuels are thwarting the development of renewable technologies.
- Another good discussion is happening at CandidAnswers.org, a site that provides an “online voter guide that enables voters to directly ask candidates questions on the environment.”
- And there are some thought-provoking comments surrounding Hillary Clinton’s claim that “America will once again rise from the ashes of the Bushes.”
With these discussions and others, it’s clear that several users are well on their way to claiming the prizes mentioned above (in addition to contributing to the dialogue about the growth of a green economy, and the presidential candidates approaches to moving the country in that direction). But just like the presidential race, the Scavenger Hunt isn’t over… there’s still time to join, contribute, and maybe even win.
