 Teen not-for-profit DoSomething.org and HP today announced a new campaign to challenge teens to find new and innovative ways to conserve energy and reduce waste in their schools.

The eight week campaign, running from Feb. 15 through Earth Day on April 22, is expected to engage over 100,000 teens. A panel of judges, including Nick Cannon, host of America's Got Talent, will evaluate the entries based on creativity, innovation, reduction in waste, energy saved and number of students involved. The best use of technology will be an important criterion for selecting campaign winners. The winners will receive up to $5,000 in funding and an HP Artist Edition notebook to carry out their plan.
