EPA invited student teams to compete in two design categories: the Master Plan category, which examines how green infrastructure can be broadly integrated across campus, and the Demonstration Project category, which focuses on how green infrastructure can address stormwater pollution at a specific site on campus.

1st Place Demonstration Project Category: University of Oregon
2nd Place Demonstration Project Category: University of Arizona
1st Place Master Plan Category: University of Louisiana at Lafayette
2nd Place Master Plan Category: Florida International University

EPA is also pleased to recognize Utah State University for honorable mention in the Demonstration Project category and the University of Arizona for honorable mention in the Master Plan category.
1st place teams will receive a $2,000 student prize to be split among team members and a $3,000 faculty prize to support green infrastructure research and education. 2nd place teams will receive a $1,000 student prize and a $2,000 faculty prize.
EPA plans to announce the eighth annual Campus RainWorks Challenge in the summer of 2019.
