The emergence of hot summer weather and sun-worshiping has inspired the latest and greatest Inhabitat contest: Summer Green Gadget Giveway.  Over the next two weeks, we are giving away a bunch of great prizes to Inhabitat readers, all in the spirit of summer fun. And unlike some of the other competitions we’ve run in the past – this one is pretty easy to enter and open to everyone, regardless of design talent or time. All you need to do is register and signup to subscribe to Inhabitat through our weekly newsletter!
The grand prize giveaway is a super hot Voltaic Solar Power Backpack (retail value $250) , which can charge all of your personal electronics on the go. We’ve also got hand-crank lanterns , Inhabitat tote bags  and and truly green organic Inhabitat T-shirts ! The lucky winners  will be announced in our July 3rd newsletter, and it’s easy to get in on the green gadgets action. Read on for details on how to score one of these great summer giveaways…
GREENER GADGET SUMMER CONTEST – DEADLINE JULY 2nd!
Because we love to share the green goods with our loyal Inhabitat readers, we will be giving away a host of great prizes to randomly selected inhabitat subscribers  over the next two weeks. You can’t win unless you are an Inhabitat newsletter subscriber , so be sure to register with us in order to be eligible for prizes. Plus, we will be announcing all winners in our weekly newsletter on Thursday, July 3rd so the only way to find out if you’ve won is to catch the news in next week’s newsletter. If you are not currently an Inhabitat subscriber, you can sign up here:
Remember, WE WILL ANNOUNCE WINNERS IN OUR NEWSLETTER ON JULY 3rd, so you will have to actually open and read the newsletter to find out if you have won! (Yes, sorry – this does require 30 seconds of work on your part). This operates pretty much like an online raffle: if your name is selected and we don’t hear anything from you, we’ll give your prize to someone else… so stay tuned to our weekly newsletter  in order to claim your prize.
Five lucky Inhabitat subscribers have already won Inhabitat T-shirts and/or tote bags by signing up quickly! Congratulations to the first 5 readers who signed up for our newsletter on Monday. We’re going to be doing this first-come, first-server thing again, and there are still plenty of prizes up for grabs so be sure to subscribe to the Inhabitat newsletter and read on for more giveaway details…
(Thank you to our friends at Voltaic  for sponsoring this competition!)
2ND PRIZE: Freeplay hand-crank LED Lantern 
Two lucky second prize winners will get Inhabitat Tote bags  with hand-crank LED Indigo outdoor lanterns, made by Freeplay . These lanterns are totally human-powered and require no batteries, so they are great for camping, emergencies, etc.
2nd prize winners will also get their choice of Inhabitat T-shirt .
1. Prizes will only be given to recipients in the US and Canada. Sorry international readers, but its really tough for us to ship overseas and deal with customs and all that!
2. You can only sign up for our newsletter ONCE, so this basically limits entries to one per person.
3. All winners will need to get in touch with Inhabitat within ONE WEEK of announcement of winners in order to receive their prizes. Failure to respond to email or newsletter messages that you have won a prize will result in forfeiture of that prize to someone else.
