Last Friday, we announced the first winner in Treehugger and Seventh Generation's Convenient Truths contest: Robin Hays' video "One Person" won the EPIC International Prize! For her video, Robin (pictured above) received $5000 CAD for a sustainable shopping spree, a Jorg & Olif Citybike, and a pair of biodegradable Earthangels Shoes from John Fluevog. Robin received her prize at the EPIC Sustainable Living Expo in Vancouver last weekend; her video was also screened for Expo attendees.
Robin's only the first winner in the contest, though -- more are on the way! The top twenty contest videos, chosen by visitors to Treehugger, are now with our celebrity panel of judges. They'll choose the top ten videos, and then our guest judge Ed Begley, Jr. will select the Grand Prize winner, as well as second and third places, from those ten. As with the EPIC International Prize, those winners will receive much more than a pat on the back -- the contest will award nearly $30,000 in prizes to the selected video makers!
Keep an eye on the contest site: more winners will be announced in early April.
