Nearly 400 proposals were submitted and evaluated by the judges, who then selected 109 semi-finalists. The authors had a chance to revise their proposals with the judges’ feedback before entering a second round of evaluation, where 58 proposals were selected as finalists and opened for public voting.  Over August and September, the Climate CoLab community grew to over 45,000 members and cast over 11,000 votes to select the contests’ Popular Choice winners.

Save Ohno was the Judges’ Choice Winner in the Shifting Public Attitudes & Behavior category: “Unleash the energy of millions by making climate action simple, relevant and fun / It’s 2050 and your granddaughter, Ohno, is suffering. Your climate action today will change her world and transform her life for the better.”
