The EcoSite Competition is looking for a lead sponsor in order to launch.

 Interested? Contact US.

The mission of the EcoSite Competition is to encourage developers to build websites for EcoEnlightened organizations, organizations working to clean up and protect the environment, stop climate change, EcoEducate etc. In the process we also look to give recognition to participating developers, volunteers, and sponsors as well as promote Open Source solutions that build powerful enduring communities like those built around Drupal and WordPress.

The competition is designed to be a positive, socially responsible, and friendly competition that works to end the Fossil Fuel Age and dawn the Age of EcoEnlightenment! The EcoSite Competition is a Fossil Fuel Age Challenge Charitable Organization Initiative.
