Last Week to Register

Calling all college students! There’s still time to register for EPA’s 7th annual Campus RainWorks Challenge.

Due to the challenges some campuses have been experiencing in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, EPA has extended the deadline to register for the 2018 Campus RainWorks Challenge to FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2018, 11:59 PM EDT. Please share this update within your networks.

Pollution associated with stormwater runoff is a problem that impacts communities across the country. The Campus RainWorks Challenge is a green infrastructure design competition that seeks to engage with the next generation of environmental professionals, foster a dialogue about stormwater management, and showcase the environmental, economic, and social benefits of green infrastructure practices. Current students at American colleges and universities are eligible to participate. Student teams must register in order to submit their entries by December 14th. Winners will be announced in the Spring of 2019. Each first-place team will earn a student prize of $2,000 to be divided evenly among student team members and a faculty prize of $3,000 to support green infrastructure research or training. Second-place teams will win a student prize of $1,000 and a $2,000 faculty prize.
