We are launching a Chicken Coop Design Competition to challenge creative thinkers & makers to design a chicken coop for backyard use in urban/suburban America. Our US-based nonprofit, The Poultry Project, works with an indigenous Ugandan org, TASO (http://www.tasouganda.org), to help AIDS orphans start small poultry businesses so they can earn extra $ selling eggs and supplement their diets with eggs. Our goal with the competition is to raise awareness about our work with AIDS orphans in Uganda while promoting the local food/urban chicken keeping movements in the US. Winning designs will be awarded cash prizes ($500, $250) and will be modified for use in Uganda.
The competition brief/entry form and more details can be found at our website http://www.poultryproject.com
