For over a week we have run our Back to School Contest  to giveaway a fabulous solar-powered bag by Noon Solar . In the last few days, we have received over 100 funny, heartwarming, and just plain wacky submissions from you guys trying to convince us who is the most deserving of the free Noon Solar bag . We were completely floored by how many amazingly thoughtful and creative responses we got, and have had a really hard time picking a winner out of so many compelling submissions. But we only have one Noon Solar bag to giveaway, so without further ado, the winner is….
1ST PRIZE – High School Teacher ‘Kitschy’
2ND PRIZE – College student biking around Europe ‘Pecanino’
RUNNERS-UP (We picked a few more than 5, because we just couldn’t decide..)
Hope you guys all want Inhabitat T-shirt (or Totes). If you don’t – please let us know so that we can give them to someone who wants them.

Our first prize winner Kitschy has won solar-powered bag  by Noon Solar  – their choice of a ladylike midnight ‘Cortland’ handbag  (worth $412) or a more manly midnight ‘Logan’ style  (worth $452). These beautifully handcrafted bags can charge any small handheld gadgets from cell phones to iPods. If that weren’t enough in terms of green credentials, Noon Solar bags  are also made from sustainable materials  such as hand-dyed hemp and vegetable-tanned leathers. Finally, these must-have bags are definitely the cutest solar accessories around, powering your eco-chic wardrobe while keeping your personal gadgets charged and ready to go.
Eight runner-up third prize winners will receive an Inhabitat T-shirt (or tote bag)  of their choice.
