Join us at this fun and inspiring event! Six teams from John Jay, Fox Lane and Harvey were selected as finalists in January and offered funding to carry out their ideas. They present the results of their projects at the Finals before a community-wide audience where judges ask tough questions and choose the Greenlight Award winner.
Prize: $500 and an engraved Greenlight Award trophy for the winning team. $500 grant for their faculty advisor.
