Dell Launches Global Competition to Design World's Greenest Computer

As part of a challenge to what it calls the "ReGeneration" -- computer users of all ages who care about the environment -- Dell announced a competition to design the world's greenest computer, and to lay the groundwork for environmentally responsible computing around the world.

Dell's International Green Computing Technology Design Competition urges design students to offer ideas demonstrating fresh approaches and responsible solutions for green computing technology, but the competition is open to everyone. Prizes range from $10,000 for selected finalists to $15,000 plus a matching $15,000 for a winning student and his or her university.

The competition was announced at the 2007 ICSID / IDSA World Design Congress, which continues through Saturday in San Francsico.

Competition details are available at dell.com/designregeneration. Submissions will be accepted from January through April of 2008, finalists will be selected by a jury in May, and then the public will vote on the final winner.
