Springs Sustainability Snapshot Contest winners announced
Tuesday, May 01, 2012
Throughout the month of April, the City of Colorado Springs Office of Innovation and Sustainability (OIS) held a Sustainability Snapshot Contest as part of Earth Month festivities. Today, the City announced the winners of more than $800 in prizes thanks to generous community partners.
Participants uploaded 193 photos of themselves performing 20 sustainability activities to the OIS Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/CS.OIS#!/CS.OIS/photos. Six people entered a photo in all 20 categories to become eligible for the grand prize drawing of $500, sponsored by SunShare. The winner is Jennifer Elledge.
Additional $100 winners include:
- Sam Terry for cycling/alternative transportation picture (sponsored by Old Town Bike Shop),
- Kathy Thierry for ride to downtown on a bus or using alternative fuel picture (sponsored by Southern Colorado Clean Cities Coalition), and
- LeeAnn Westfall for recycling picture (sponsored by Greener Corners)
Ryan Lloyd also won a heavy duty tote bag made from repurposed City banners in the college/university bonus category, for uploading a picture of performing activities while wearing college garb.
Winning names were drawn during today’s All Pikes Peak Reads book selection announcement of “The Year of the Flood” by Margret Atwood in honor of the tie between sustainability and this year’s theme, Survival: Against All Odds.
