Green Festival Community Award

GreenFestivals Award 2014 CommunityAward 300Green Festival is committed to supporting inspiring organizations & projects that educate and benefit their local communities with The Green Festival Community Award, a grant awarded to a deserving non-profit, chosen by the public! New in 2017 the grant is now split between 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place winners! 1st place winner will receive $3,000, 2nd place will receive $1,500 and the 3rd place finalist will receive $500.

The Green Festival Community Award is a great way to gain exposure, support and resources for new or ongoing projects. Organizations get up close and personal with the community through extensive online outreach and social media recognition, and in person, as finalists meet and greet with Green Festival attendees to pitch their ideas. Projects must be locally-based, with creative ideas, measurable goals and a direct benefit to the local, sustainable community.
