Welcome to the NCW EcoChallenge

The NCW EcoChallenge is a community-wide competition only for Chelan and Douglas county residents.

Participants challenge themselves to try new, environmentally-friendly behaviors for two weeks. You choose the behaviors you want to commit to doing (from dozens of options) and report your progress online daily. In addition to learning how to reduce your carbon footprint, you have a chance to win valuable individual prizes and cash for the nonprofit agency* of your choice!

Registering For A Team

The NCW EcoChallenge is both an individual and team competition. Individuals can earn prizes (see the list of prizes in the dropdown menu) and teams compete to earn cash for the local nonprofit agency* of their choice. HOW YOU REGISTER IS IMPORTANT—it will determine which nonprofit agency* you are competing for!

*A 501c3 charitable organization, or public agency, church or school in Chelan or Douglas County. All organizations must be approved by the Community Foundation of NCW.

Why Do The NCW EcoChallenge?

We believe the solution to the planet’s biggest challenges lies in the power of individual choices and our collective action.

Sometimes global problems seem too overwhelming for our daily lives. The NCW EcoChallenge gives you ideas for actions you can take RIGHT NOW to address these problems -- as individuals and as a community.

The NCW EcoChallenge is brought to you by two local organizations

Climate Conversations NCW (CCNCW), a grassroots group of local residents concerned about what climate change means to North Central Washington. CCNCW’s mission is to raise awareness of climate change, advocate for more environmentally sound behaviors, and encourage our communities to make a difference… together.

Sustainable Wenatchee, a non-profit with the mission to promote a culture of environmental stewardship in the Wenatchee valley by inspiring and educating community members to live more sustainable lives.
