Traveling Green competition

Here are three exciting contests that you can enter into this Earth Day:

1. 2009 Green Choice Awards

GreatNonprofits has launched a 2009 Green Choice Awards in an effort to identify the best organizations working towards environmental sustainability. The focus of GreatNonprofits and their Website is to offer a way for everyday people to review their experiences with nonprofit groups — similar to resources like Yelp and the Zagat Guide. For Earth Day, they are focusing on the green sector, and when the contest ends of April 15th, they will be able to announce the best-reviewed small, medium and large environmental nonprofits according to everyday people.

To learn more about the contest, visit the Green Earth Friend website.

2. “Traveling Green” eco friendly travel contest, is a new travel community where users provide short recommendations of places they like, and can create guides with a theme. Nextstop has put together a contest called “Traveling Green”, calling for creative minds to put together a guide with your favorite “green” travel destinations. The prize is a $50 VISA Gift Card for Earth Day. The contest is open for entries until April 21 (the day before Earth Day).

3. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Annual Earth Day Photo Project

And finally, there is the EPA’s annual Earth Day photo project to gather and show photos that protect human health and the environment. All you have to do is join the EPA’s Flickr photo groups and contribute your photos.
