Project Green ChallengeJoin Project Green and Associated Students Inc. for 30-day environmentally-themed challenges that can change lives, shift mindsets, and equip you with knowledge and resources to lead change on campuses and your community. Winners could win $ 5,000 and a paid trip to San Francisco.  sign up, visit our website.



The Challenge:

Each morning of October, a uniquely themed challenge is delivered to registered participants via email and remains live for 24 hours. Students complete bold actions, upload deliverables, acquire points on a leaderboard, and achieve impact. Submissions tap into students’ creativity, research skills, out-of-the-box thinking and ingenuity. Prize packages are awarded daily for excellent work.

Daily WInners:

Each day, up to 10 Greener and 10 Greenest outstanding submissions will be selected as “daily winners” and receive a themed package with organic, eco, fair trade, natural and zero waste prizes shipped to your door.


At the end of the 30 days, up to 14 PGC Finalists are selected to attend the PGC Finals — outstanding young leaders from around the world chosen from the global pool of PGC participants based on points, depth and breadth of engagement, number of challenge wins, quality of work, a final exam, and video recap of their 30-day journey. Read about exemplary next generation changemakers and dive into Climate Action Projects (CAPs) from last year’s PGC!

Grand Prize Winners:

The PGC Finals takes place in San Francisco, California from November 16 to 19, 2023 — a transformational, all-expenses-paid eco summit that brings together like-minded peers with an esteemed group of eco leaders, speakers, mentors, ambassadors and partners to support, equip and propel Finalists with the tools, resources and know-how to rise as leaders. Finalists present their 30-day journeys and develop frameworks for CAPs. From December 2023 to April 2024, Finalists work with Turning Green and teams of mentors to implement CAPs before presenting virtually in April, when the PGC Champion receives a $5,000 Acure Green Award.
