Our Elevator Pitch Contest brought in over 150 entries — a number I’ll happily refer to as “whopping.” I know I said I was going to pick a winner, but … it’s just too dang hard.

Instead, Grist’s crack staff of elevator pitch evaluators combed through the entries and picked out their 10 favorites. Now it’s up to you, dear readers, to pick the winner, who will receive a VFOGT (Very First Official Grist T-shirt).

Grist relies on the support of generous readers like you. Donate today to keep our climate news free. All donations matched!
