By creating a sustainable design competition, the purpose was to raise awareness and increase participation in designing sustainable graphic design projects at San Francisco State University. I advertised the competition throughout the design department using recycled materials. I provided the rules to the competition along with links to books and articles about sustainable design on the AIGA SFSU student group website. After all the submissions were in, I chose SF State student Jesse Smith as the winner of the competition. He created a working lamp made out of 100% recycled material. As the winner, Jesse received a certificate of recognition, a limited edition t-shirt by a non-profit organization called iDO who educates underprivileged youth about the fundamentals and importance of art and design. Furthermore, the BEYOND competition donated a $100 check to iDO on Jesse's behalf.
