WASHINGTON — EPA is launching its third-annual Campus RainWorks Challenge, enabling college students to develop green infrastructure systems helping to reduce stormwater pollution and form resilience to climate change, according to a press release.
Working with a faculty advisor, teams compiled of undergraduate and graduate students create a green infrastructure project proposal for the campus that demonstrates how managing stormwater at its source can benefit the environment and the community, stated the release.
EPA will announce winning entries in April 2015, with each successful team earning a student prize of $1,000-$2,000 divided evenly among the group members and a faculty prize of $2,000-$3,000 to support green infrastructure research or training, continued the release.
Registration for the 2014 Campus RainWorks Challenge begins Sept. 2 through Oct. 3, with a submission deadline of Dec. 19, noted the release.
