The Green Workplace Challenge was publicly announced by Sustainable Pittsburgh on August 16. I finalized the GWC competition manual, added a Confidentiality section to the manual and website, added a "Getting Started" section to the website, and started blogging about updates to the manual and media coverage of the GWC. Since the public announcement of the Green Workplace Challenge, we've secured 12 participants, with even more verbal commitments. I was amazed to find out from our web developer that the GWC website had gotten almost 30,000 hits for the month of August! I've also gotten to help with publicity materials and outreach for the competition, including a presentation to the Young Executives Council of the Rivers Club. In only two weeks, the Green Workplace Challenge has been covered by several print, online, television, and radio outlets. I look forward to getting more registrants for the Challenge.
