NCW EcoChallenge

May 13 – 26, 2017

The NCW EcoChallenge is a community-wide competition for residents of Chelan and Douglas counties.

Participants challenge themselves to try new, environmentally-friendly behaviors for two weeks: brushing teeth without leaving the water running, changing to LED lightbulbs, riding the bus, recycling, and eating local foods, to name a few.

You choose the behaviors you want to change (from dozens of options), and report your progress online daily to earn points.  In addition to learning how to reduce your carbon footprint and be kinder to the planet, you have a chance to win valuable individual prizes!

NCW EcoChallenge teams also compete to provide cash prizes that will go to the nonprofit agency of their choice!

  • First Place = $1,500
  • Second Place = $750
  • Third Place = $250

Join us at the NCW EcoChallenge Kick-off Party!

It’s Easy!

  • Join an exisiting team or create a team of up to 15 people total (friends, coworkers, staff, board members, classrooms, etc.)
  • Identify a “Team Captain” that will register their team
  • Select a nonprofit for which your team is competing
  • Team members will sign up online and choose their “challenges” – behaviors you will try to change during the 2-week challenge
  • Individuals record their progress online daily
  • Compete for individual prizes and three cash prizes for the nonprofit agency you select

Selecting Your Nonprofit

Your team will be selecting a nonprofit to receive one of 3 cash prizes should your team accrue the most points.

Your selected nonprofit must be:

  • a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, public agency, church, school, classroom, student club, or PTA
  • located in Chelan or Douglas County
  • approved by the Community Foundation of NCW – click here for a pre-approved list
