The City of Tacoma, Metro Parks Tacoma, and the Port of Tacoma invite design teams to participate in the “Tacoma Green Infrastructure Challenge.” This design competition challenges teams to tackle one of three real-world site designs to showcase sustainable solutions for stormwater runoff. The challenge provides participants an opportunity to receive hands-on learning, networking opportunities, and recognition for their creative and innovative engineering design. Design challenge categories include industrial and urban redevelopment sites as well as a green roadway. Winning teams in each category will receive a cash prize of $5,000, and will be featured in Tacoma’s spotlight through the “Tacoma Report,” Tacoma Today, and the city’s e-newsletter.

Teams must register by Dec. 15 and submit designs by Dec. 18. Click here for registration information and contest details.

The Water Environment Federation is a supporter of low impact development (LID) design competitions, and produced a white paper on the concept last year. Click to learn more about hosting an LID design competition.
