enviroSCULPT Award

 

THINK GREEN BE CREATIVE WIN BIG

The Greater Toronto Chapter of the Emerging Green Builders (EGBs) is proud to host the annual enviroSCULPT Award, a contest for students and young professionals (within 5 years of graduation) which aims to promote awareness of the importance of diverting materials from the waste stream. The purpose of this competition is to change waste material into beautiful art that is creative and fun. Students will not only benefit from the experience of this competition, but are also eligible for large prizes and networking opportunities. The finalists are awarded at our annual Canada Green Building Council - Greater Toronto Chapter Gala and Awards Program, where their works are also displayed.

The theme for the 2016 enviroSCULPT competition is Food SecurityApplicants should design their sculptures with the theme in mind and will be asked to explain their pieces in the written component of their submission. This theme may be applied in conjunction with other concepts such as sustainable building technology, utilities, sustainable planning (communities) etc. We look forward to seeing how applicants incorporate the idea of connectivity into their art work.
