Flood Less Summer Challenge

 

New Orleans is well into the unofficial season of local flooding, and we think local flooding should get you more than just wet socks. Post the best shot of flooding in your neighborhood with the hashtag #FloodLessChallenge or email them to us directly, and you could win a hand-painted rain barrel!

The Grand Prize!

New Orleans is one of the rainiest cities in the country, with over 5 feet falling per year, but we can learn to live with the water. GRN’s Flood Less New Orleans campaign is advocating on behalf of planning, practices and technologies that can help our city to live better with water and flood less. Join the Flood Less Summer Challenge to help raise awareness about how we can stay drier using green technologies, supporting strong leadership and practicing flood prevention at home!

Gulf Restoration Network will share our 10 favorite photo submissions, and we’ll let our Facebook followers pick the top 3. The first prize submission will receive a rain barrel hand-painted by Tracy Jarmon, and three runners up will receive a tote bag. All submissions will help us to collect pictures for our Flood Less New Orleans campaign.

Submit your photo by September 30 (use the hashtag #FloodLessChallenge or email it directly to hannah@healthygulf.org), and then keep your eye on our facebook page!

Submissions must include your name, the location of the photo, as well as the date and time. By submitting your photo, you are giving GRN permission to use it for campaign and promotional purposes. 

Hannah Pepper-Cunningham is GRN's Online Communications Coordinator
