Zeftron will reward and honor the 2011 first place winner by providing a $1,000 check in the winner’s name made payable to the sustainable organization or charity of his/her choice. A $250 prize will be made directly to the winner to further his or her own personal sustainability efforts. The 2011 runner-up recipient will have a $500 check in his or her name made payable to the sustainable organization of his or her choice. As further recognition, the runner-up will also receive $100 directly from Zeftron nylon.
