EPA is announcing the fifth annual Campus RainWorks Challenge prize competition that asks student teams to design green infrastructure for their campus.  This year teams will incorporate climate resiliency and consider community engagement in their stormwater management designs.   EPA is calling for college and university students to form teams with a faculty advisor to participate in the competition.  EPA encourages teams to be multidisciplinary (comprised of planners, engineers, designers, scientists, and more).  Teams will be able to submit in either the master plan or demonstration project categories.

Registration for this year’s competition will be open from September 1-30, 2016.  Submissions for this year’s competition will be due December 16, 2016 and winners will be announced in Spring 2017.

EPA will offer faculty and student prizes. Faculty advisors will receive $3,000 for first-place teams and $2,000 for second-place teams. Student team members will receive $2,000 for first-place teams and $1,000 for second-place teams.
