First, we would love to send a big THANK YOU to all 138 participants for participating in the Seeed for Earth 2018 Contest and making it a huge success. We received 60 very qualified entries over the course of the one-month event, all of which were inspiring and amazing!

Due to the quantity and quality of the entries, we had to extend the judging period as the judges (a big thanks to each of you!) needed more time to review the projects. After some incredibly difficult decision-making, we finally have the results for our top 15 projects based on the accumulated scores.

CONGRATS to each of these 15 submissions! (Please email your contact info — name and address — to so we could ship out the prizes.
