Last year, NetSquared Featured Project, FamilyFarmed.org received the Yahoo! Green Award for its potential to use Web 2.0 tools to benefit the environment by connecting everyday consumers with their local farmers.
This year, Yahoo! is looking for innovative "green mashups" that will inspire people to use social technology to help the environment.
Yahoo! will review the project submissions included in the "Environment" Cause Area of the NetSquared Project Gallery. Using Yahoo! APIs is a plus, but not necessary. The most innovative green mashup will receive a $5,000 Yahoo! Search Marketing award.
The winner will be announced on June 5, 2008.
To be considered for the Yahoo! Green Award, you need to have a mashup project posted in the NetSquared Project Gallery with the "Environment" tag selected in the Cause Area by May 30, 2008. If you already have a project in the NetSquared Project Gallery that benefits the environment, you can go back and edit your project to include the "Environment" tag in the Cause Area.
