Thanks to everyone who voted and helped Yestermorrow win the Revelation to Action competition for a $5,000 prize which will go towards development of our new semester program in sustainable design/build.I had the opportunity to travel to Boston yesterday for an awards ceremony sponsored by Ashoka and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (the sponsors of the competition).

Over 4,800 people viewed our entry online over the course of the past few months.

Thanks again to all of you for your help. With this award and support from additional funders we have raised $30,000 towards the $50,000 needed to get our semester program off the ground. You can help us reach our goal by the end of 2010 by donating online and designating your contribution towards the semester program.
