Welcome to the Triangle Corporate Earth Day Events! You are part of the growing network of businesses that are making a collective impact on the health of our communities. Through this program, employees work together to complete a project with a local environmental nonprofit, contributing to everything from reducing carbon in the atmosphere to providing local, organic produce to marginalized communities.
This page has everything the company representative needs to know about the program. Please read through the information below and email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

The virtual Mission Reveal event will take place via Zoom on Thurs. March 16th, 3:30-4:30pm and feature an interactive game to learn about all the participating nonprofits and reveal your project match for the Corporate Challenge. You will need to register your full team for the event. You may register as many employees as your sponsorship allows (refer to Sponsorship-at-a-Glance drop-down). Once teams complete the game, they will learn their project match and have 5-10 minutes to meet with the nonprofit project host in a breakout room to learn about their project.
Directly following Mission Reveal, you will receive a link to share with your team with the project information and employee registration which will be capped at your allowed volunteer amount (refer to Sponsorship-at-a-Glance drop-down). If you have your own registration through your company, please email email@example.com to ensure it includes all necessary information and questions.
Teams will meet 1-4pm on April 13th across the Triangle to complete volunteer projects and compete for the coveted, locally-made, blown glass globe awards—and bragging rights!
- The Spirit Award – Given to the team that shows the most spirit and excitement about participating.
- Teamwork Award – Given to the team that works best as a unit on the work site.
- Best Overall – Given to the team with the most impressive overall impact.
- The Storytelling Award – At the Celebration, teams have 90 seconds to share their experience through any form of creative expression they’d like!
- Best Picture/Best Video – Teams will submit their best picture and 15 second video from the event for these prizes.
Judging – Each location will have a panel of 7-8 local, well-known sustainability leaders as judges. A judge will join your team onsite for a portion of the project to engage with and observe your team to help determine awards. At the end of the project, your team will be evaluated by the project host and results will be shared with the judges.
Image Sharing – On your Team Registration, you submitted an individual who will be responsible for collecting and submitting the best photo and video via the submission form. We will email this contact before the Challenge Day to submit photos through the form or via email. Please label your submission by company name. For the sake of judging in a timely manner, media must be uploaded by 4:30pm the day of the Challenge.
This event allows the teams to reconvene, hear about each other’s experiences, and celebrate impact! Employees can register in the Corporate Challenge Volunteer Registration form.
Storytelling – Each team is encouraged to participate in the storytelling competition. Teams will have 90 seconds to share their experience in the Challenge through slides, video, song, poetry, or other creative ideas – There is no limitation to the story competition except the 90 second rule!
Awards – Judges will deliberate on award winners and present in Charlotte at the Celebration and in the Triangle at the Earth Day Breakfast. Award winners will be listed on the Corporate Earth Day page on our website and shared on social media.
The Corporate Earth Day Breakfast is the final event of the Corporate Earth Day Events program and will take place in Raleigh on Thurs. April 20th, 8:30am.
