The 3rd annual NCW EcoChallenge is now open for registration! The event starts May 6th and ends May 19th.
The NCW EcoChallenge is a community-wide competition for Chelan and Douglas county residents. Participants challenge themselves to try new, environmentally-friendly behaviors for two weeks. You choose the behaviors you want to commit to doing (from dozens of options) and report your progress online daily. In addition to learning how to reduce your carbon footprint, you have a chance to win valuable individual prizes and cash for the nonprofit agency of your choice!
New this year:
- We have new actions in almost every category, so even if you've participated in years past, challenge yourself to new actions!
- We have new individual prizes (over $3,000 worth) and will be giving out multiple prizes each day BUT ONLY FOR THOSE WHO LOG IN to report their progress the day before.
- We're spreading the wealth this year and the top FIVE teams will win cash for their favorite local non-profit. If you work for a non-profit, this is a great opportunity to create a team and raise money while challenging yourself and co-workers to being more eco-friendly!
The EcoChallenge is a Northwest Earth Institute program that is facilitated by Sustainable Wenatchee. Our main sponsors are Chelan County PUD, Link Transit, and Waste Management. For other sponsors, visit the website.
