GBI’s annual Project of the Year winners are determined by a group of objective judges who review submissions and make thoughtful selections. Judges are responsible for reviewing up to ten project submissions, recommending two honorable mentions, a runner up, and a Project of the Year, and providing justification for each selections. The judging period takes place over two weeks in the month of March. The project winners are announced each year during Earth Week in April. GBI accepts applications for Project of the Year Judges on a rolling basis. Applicants will be notified of selection within two weeks of submissions.
