Bring Out Your Best, Innovative, DIY Creation for the MAKE Green Project Contest

SEBASTOPOL, CA--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) - MAKE Magazine is looking for innovators who are working out clever solutions to today's environmental challenges to enter the Green Project Contest, inspired by GE's ecomagination. 

What: 

Green Project Contest hosted by MAKE, as part of GE's ecomagination.

Do you have an innovative project that you think is "green" or one you've been thinking about starting? Do you think others would find your project "environmentally-friendly," a worthwhile solution to today's environmental problems? Does it promote conservation? Appropriate use of technology? Let's find out.

Enter your project now for a chance to win a trip for two to a Maker Faire of your choice (Bay Area, Detroit or New York) in 2011!

How:

1. Post your green-worth DIY project to the Green Project Contest website on MAKE
http://makezine.com/tagyourgreen/form.csp

2. Encourage your readers, family and friends, and your social network to vote for your project! www.makezine.com/tagyourgreen

3. Posts that get lots of votes, will besides being eligible for prizes, will also draw the attention of MAKE editors. We'll start doing blog posts, possibly even articles in the magazine about some of the more popular projects.

4. To help inspire you, we're putting together a series of videos on Maker Pioneers http://makezine.com/tagyourgreen/videos.csp who are doing work we think is worth of the tag "green." The videos feature Saul Griffith of Onya Cycles, Sachi DeCou of Sol Design Labs, Limor Fried of Ada Fruit Industries, and Ben Dublin-Thaler with the BioBus.
