USGBC Announces Call for Submissions for 2012 Natural Talent Design Competition
by Anna Foden, LEED AP, Chapter Services Coordinator
After a successful 2010 Natural Talent Design Competition in New Orleans, the USGBC will be engaging the community like never before by asking YOU to create the next challenge for the next Natural Talent Design Competition. By submitting your idea, you may have the chance to affect your own community. All you have to do is create a simple submission and send it the USGBC!
USGBC will be holding a charrette in mid to late March to determine the next design challenge for the competition. They will be using your submissions to drive the discussion, so make sure your idea is at the table! The best submission will have the opportunity to participate in the charrette in Washington, DC along side green building and community development visionaries. Choose a subject that represents a need. This can be a person, place, or other item within your community that would greatly benefit from a sustainable building solution. The more powerful the need, the better, as they are looking for ideas on how a green building can transform a community. For more information, competition guidelines, and to submit your idea, visit the USGBC 2012 Natural Talent Design Competition page.
