Support Spring, TX competing in Yahoo's Green City ChallengeJust a quick pass-along request from HS reader Lauren Kozak:
Spring, TX is one of the top contenders in Yahoo’s Green City Challenge. Cities across the country are competing for the fleet of hybrid taxis -- the more residents of Spring use Yahoo! Be a Better Planet (http://better.yahoo.com/planet), the better your chance of having the hybrid taxis or $250,000 for an environmental project for the city.My last check tonight shows that Spring has slipped to fourth, but I imagine a strong push by Houston Strategies readers - plus maybe some other local bloggers - could put them back in the running. It would be a nice accolade for a suburb of the Energy Capital of the World...
There’s only a week left in the challenge, but Spring is currently in second place and rising-- and definitely has a chance to win. I was hoping you might be interested in rallying your local readers to try to win the challenge, along with fostering some Houston pride, and bettering our planet!
