The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is calling for entries to its fourth annual Campus RainWorks Challenge. The challenge is a green infrastructure design competition for undergraduate and graduate students. Working with a faculty advisor, student teams are asked to submit design boards, a project narrative, and a letter of support describing a proposed green infrastructure project for a location on their campuses. This year student teams are encouraged to incorporate climate resiliency into their stormwater management designs.
Registration opened on Sept. 1 and ends Sept. 30. Registrants must submit their entries by Dec. 18, and winners will be announced on April 22, 2016. First-place teams will earn $2000 to divide evenly among students as well as a faculty prize of $3000 to support green infrastructure research or training.
