ARCHIVE: Earth Day Game
APRIL 20-23, 2023
It ain’t easy being green… but we’ve got some tips to make sustainability a cinch! In this four-day game, you’ll complete fun tasks like “find a butterfly garden” or “take a selfie with a solar panel” and answer trivia about Wisconsin’s environment and natural resources.
The goal: highlight the amazing work of Wisconsin-based conservation, climate and environmental justice organizations. These issues can feel overwhelming, but the best way to make an impact is to get involved locally. We hope you’ll learn something, discover a new way to get involved, and (of course) have a ton of fun outside in the spring weather!
You’ll use our game app to see how friends are doing, track your score, view your place on the leaderboard, and get alerts when new actions and trivia are released in the game.
- 1ST PLACE: Forward Games t-shirt and stickers. We’ll also donate $50 to the partner organization of your choice!
- 2ND PLACE: Forward Games bumper sticker
- TOP 3 receive WINNER BADGE on Forward
- ALL TOP 10 will receive limited-edition game stickers
