The Green Ideas Challenge Returns!

ACTion Alexandria is once again hosting the Green Ideas Challenge, starting on Wednesday, June 1. For the fourth year, ACTion is asking local nonprofits and community members, working in partnerships with local organizations, to submit their ideas for making Alexandria an even greener, more sustainable place to live, work and visit. 

All submitted ideas will be reviewed by a panel of judges, and winning ideas will receive up to $2,000 each to be turned into reality. Through a generous grant from The Dominion Foundation, a total of $5,000 will be awarded. 

Ideas should be neighborhood focused and additional consideration will be given to ideas which incorporate or involve children and youth. The goal of the Green Ideas Challenge is to engage the community in problem solving and collective action to improve the local environment through ACTion's innovative, online platform. 

Last year's winning ideas included teaching a series of art and science classes for kindergarteners at Cora Kelly School, led by UpCycle Creative Reuse Center, installing signs and a mural illustrating the importance of the water cycle at Mount Vernon Community School, and constructing an outdoor classroom and children's garden at Jefferson-Houston School. 

Entries for this year's Green Ideas Challenge will be accepted until Sunday, June 26. After the submission deadline, community members may continue to vote for their favorite ideas on the Green Ideas Challenge page until June 30.

It’s good to know that the green ideas challenge returns. Because of the pollution and other reasons, people around the world compelling to go back to the old traditions. Hope it is the beginning of a good change. Let’s hope for the best. Babylon City Tours
