MS-SDM student teams have been selected as finalists in the MIT Climate CoLab and need your votes! Our student teams are MiKaSu and Team Wonder and are in the running for the contest’s Judges’ Choice award, (selected by the contest Judges), as well as the contest’s Popular Choice award, (determined by public vote). The Public Voting Period is now open, and will run from Tuesday, July 5 – Sunday, July 31, 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, 2016.

Award winners will be announced in early August. Anyone (over the age of 18) can vote by registering on the Climate CoLab website and clicking “Vote for proposal” on the proposal page. Members can vote for one (1) proposal per contest, and can change their vote as many times as they wish before the voting period ends. “Supports” do not equal votes. People who have previously “supported” a proposal will also need to select “Vote for proposal” to have their vote counted.


Exception: Members who have only supported one proposal in a contest will get a notification that their support has been converted to a vote, which they may change if they wish. All other members who have supported your proposal will be emailed and invited to cast a vote for your proposal. To prevent abuse, we require a valid email address in order to count a member’s vote. Any votes made by accounts with invalid email addresses will be removed.
