I like the idea of incorporating images from nature (leaves etc.) to communicate the concern for the environment.

Even though they aren’t technology oriented: logos like Cargill’s and Ascensus

~~ Ranking designs daily will also keep your contest from getting cluttered.
~~ The more feedback you provide, the better results you are going to see.
~~ Designers are not offended by "Not Interested"
