EPA Opens Registration for New Campus RainWorks Challenge

The EPA is now registering student teams from colleges and universities across the country to participate in its new design competition, the Campus RainWorks Challenge. Participating teams will compete to develop innovative approaches to stormwater management. To compete, student teams, working with a faculty advisor, must submit design plans for a proposed green infrastructure project on their campus. Winning entries will be selected by EPA and announced in April 2013, and winning teams will earn a cash prize of $1,500 - $2,500, as well as $8,000 - $11,000 in funds for their faculty advisor to conduct research on green infrastructure. To be considered, teams must register by October 5 and submit their entries by December 14. To learn more and register: www.epa.gov/campusrainworks.
