Student Design Competition: Enter the Guerrilla Green Sustainable Showdown and Transform Your SchoolFebruary 1st, 2013


Architecture for Humanity
 (AfH) is hosting the Guerrilla Green Sustainable Showdown, a national competition for all U.S. students (ages 13-19) to improve their schools. AfH is directly encourageing frustrated young people tired of waiting for the sustainable transformation of the built environment. This implementation initiative is for middle and high school students across the U.S. to update their school buildings, outdoor spaces, or activities with innovative solutions. Over $30,000 in prize money will go directly to the students. Participants willing to take this challenge head on will propose solutions at first, and then carry them out. Cameron Sinclair, ‘Chief Eternal Optimist’ of AfH and former TED Prize winner, argues that the only difference between a good idea and a great one is implementation. “I came up with Architecture for Humanity when I was a kid, and it took over a decade before I found the support to launch it,” he says. “We can’t wait while the innovative ideas sit on the shelf, so we are helping to fund the Guerrilla Green Sustainable Showdown and in turn invest in what matters, the environmental leaders of tomorrow.” Teachers and other inspired adults are encouraged to lead and guide teams of students. Register and submit a project by February 1, 2013 for consideration.
