Video: Citizen Entrepreneur Contest

At our Pre-Oscar Party last month, Global Green supporters Emmy Rossum, Dylan McDermott, Michelle Branch, Sophia Bush, Walton Goggins, Peter Mensah, and Maggie Grace helped us make this video to promote our Citizen Entrepreneur Contest. They also signed our letter to President Obama, urging him to attend the Earth Summit this June. A big hearty thanks to them all, as well as Paul Emami at Storytellerz for directing the video.

Do you know a neighbor, classmate, co-worker, friend, or family member who is a local green hero and deserves to be applauded -- and could use some help doing what they do? Maybe you’re a citizen entrepreneur? Nominate a Citizen Entrepreneur before April 15 and we will choose 10 finalists before opening up the voting online to the public. The winner will be awarded $1,000 to help fund their local green project -- and get a chance to join our delegation to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for the UN "Earth Summit" in June 2012, where we will share the inspiring stories of citizen entrepreneurs on a global stage.
