Third Annual Campus RainWorks Challenge: Registration opens Sept. 2

Published on Written by Posted in Industry

EPA has just launched its third annual Campus RainWorks Challenge, a green infrastructure design challenge for college and university students.

Student teams, working with a faculty advisor, will submit design boards, a project narrative, and a letter of support describing a proposed green infrastructure project for a location on their campus.

Teams will compete in one of two design categories:

  1. Demonstration Project category, which calls for proof-of-concept level designs for a particular site on the team’s campus
  2. Master Plan category, which calls for for conceptual designs for a broader area of campus

EPA will select first- and second-place winners in each category. Winners will earn student prizes of $1,000-$2,000 to be divided evenly among student team members, and faculty prizes of $2,000-$3,000 to support green infrastructure research or training.
