For all who have participated, know that you’re part of the biggest Clean Tech Competition in the Competition’s HISTORY! You’re part of the 39 different nations who registered teams! Teams from as far away as Turkey, Canada Fiji, Jamaica, Peru, Australia, Bulgaria, France, Singapore and South Africa submitted papers and took their shot to become a Semi-finalist! Yeah, that’s all the major continents or worldwide! 🙂
You should be very proud of what you’ve accomplished simply by submitting your paper! You’re showing the world that you want to be part of the solution!
The judges had GREAT questions of me and the papers they had to score and had great comments regarding the papers such as the following:
1) The project focuses on changing human behavior to bring about change vs focusing on negating the negative impact poor choices are having on the environment.
2) The proposed application would be relatively easy to create and would carry little to no environmental cost.
3) The project plays to the human affinity for playing online games and proposes using the in app game as a secondary route to educate and reward good choices. It is very clever… And that was just one paper’s comments! As you can imagine with all the submitted papers I can’t list all the accolades but if you want to know what the judges had to say about yours, please email me at CleanTech@cstl.org.
Please help me congratulate all of our Semi-Finalists! They worked incredibly hard on their ideas and to simply be selected out of the biggest pool of papers ever, is an incredible achievement! I’ll be in touch more as the week goes on with our semi-finalists but for those who didn’t make it, take nothing but pride in your achievement! You entered, you found your problem, created a solution, wrote a paper, you stepped up to help! Your idea can help Solve Climate Change in hitherto unknown ways!
Semi-Finalists, welcome. Come Monday the 14th, you’ll find out if you’re on your way to Stony Brook University to showcase your idea. Try not to be nervous 🙂 I’ll be in touch. Congratulations to all our semi-finalists!
