MADISON, WI — Try your hand at saving the planet by participating in the Isthmus Get Green Challenge. For complete details, visit and click on the Get Green Challenge banner. All materials must be submitted to Isthmus by March 14, 2008.

The challenge encourages Madison’s students and adults to brainstorm creative ways to help the environment. Participants can create a “green” invention, organize an educational demonstration or even build a science project — anything that is unique and will educate the public on how to “Get Green”!

The Isthmus Get Green Challenge is all-inclusive with several divisions based on age, so everyone has an opportunity to win a prize or even appear on, at Isthmus Green Day or on local television news!

The Isthmus Get Green Challenge is being held in conjunction with Isthmus Green Day — Madison’s first Green Day — an expo/conference designed to help people in our community become a little greener … and to have fun doing it! The family-friendly event will incorporate educational information and fun activities for children and adults. Isthmus Green Day will be at Monona Terrace on Saturday, April 26, 2008.
