Dear Thomas Greenbaum,
We are delighted to inform you that your entry to the Buckminster Fuller Challenge has advanced to the second stage of the selection process and is still in the running to win the prize. Twenty-four entries in total have been advanced to this next stage of our selection process.
The 250 entries to the Buckminster Fuller challenge showed a very broad and varied set of initiatives, all characterized by a strong sense of purpose, stewardship and humanitarian activity. The privilege of reviewing such a demonstration of civic responsibility, innovative initiative, and creativity has been deeply inspirational.
Stage two of the selection process begins mid-January. We are in the process of contacting your references, and in the event we need assistance in doing so or requi re additional information about your entry, we will be in touch with you.
We anticipate stage two of the selection process to conclude mid-April and the winner of the first Buckminster Fuller Challenge to be selected shortly thereafter.
On behalf of the members of the board and staff of the Buckminster Fuller Institute, thank you for your dedication to making the world work for 100% of humanity.
