“With public sentiment nothing can fail; without it nothing can succeed.” — Abraham Lincoln

Competition Overview:
Design students: help Massachusetts Turn the Tide on Fossil Fuels! Governor Deval Patrick has been a champion of clean energy and climate action, but it will take a wave of public support to ensure the success of the governor’s initiatives before his term is up.

  • Incorporates the phrase “Turn the Tide on Fossil Fuels!”
  • Conveys urgency, hope, solidarity, anger, or a sense that any individual can make a difference!
