About the Green Website Challenge

The Green Website Challenge, an annual competition, was launched by Bullfrog Power and the City of Mississauga in December 2009. Through the Challenge, students learn the differences between fossil fuel-based and renewable energy sources, and simple ways to conserve energy in their communities. The learning exercise also provides a platform for students to develop web design skills. The judging panel for the 2012 Green Website Challenge included Bullfrog Power President, Tom Heintzman, and Mississauga's Manager of the Environment, Brenda Osborne and Environmental Coordinator, Andrea McLeod.
