Green Theatre: Here Come the Judges (Part 3)
Hopefully, you got your 1-2 minute video into MSN and Treehugger's "Green Theatre" contest by last Saturday; if not, you may have to resort to buying tickets for one of July 7's Live Earth concerts. The videos are now in the hands of our celebrity judges, and they'll be deciding which five entries will earn their creators tickets, travel, lodging and spending money for Live Earth.
While we've introduced most of the judges to you already, there are still a few we'd like you to meet. Last, but certainly not least:Actor and environmentalist Woody Harrelson: Like many of the Green Theatre judges, Woody needs no introduction to most Treehugger readers. An award-winning actor on the big and small screens, as well as the stage, Woody is best known for his Academy-Award nominated portrayal of Hustler publisher and free speech advocate Larry Flynt in The People vs. Larry Flynt, and for his Emmy Award-winning role as lovable bartender Woody Boyd on Cheers. Harrelson is also well-known for his environmental activism: currently, he and wife Laura Louie publish VoiceYourself.com, a website for "promoting and inspiring individual action to create global momentum towards simple organic living and to restore balance and harmony to our planet."Environmental journalist Simran Sethi: The voice of Treehugger Radio, Simran is also host and writer for the Sundance Channel's environmental program THE GREEN, and a contributing author of Ethical Markets: Growing the Green Economy. Simran holds an MBA in sustainable management from the Presidio School of Managment, has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show, the Martha Stewart show, and the Ellen Degeneres show, and has been featured in Vanity Fair and Domino magazines.
Model, entrepreneur and environmentalist Summer Rayne Oakes: Summer likely deserves her own category here at Treehugger, as we've frequently featured her work as a media personality, model, business consultant and writer. A graduate of Cornell University, Oakes founded consulting company SRO is 2005, and regularly appears on runways and at lecture halls around the world.
These judges and the rest will be finishing up their evaluation of contest videos tomorrow. Keep an eye on Treehugger and the Green Theatre official site for upcoming announcements of the contest's winners.
