There is less than a week left for college students to register for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Campus RainWorks Challenge, which pits competing student groups against each other in a green infrastructure project challenge.
Registration for the competition ends Oct. 7. Cash prizes will be awarded to winning teams. First place teams receive $2,000 and second place teams receive $1,000.
Students can compete in either a master plan category or a site design category.
The master plan competition encourages students to develop a broad conceptual green infrastructure design that can be used in conjunction with current campus plans to enhance sustainability.
The site design category seeks competing proof-of-concept level designs, which include consulting with facility planning departments.
