mtvU and GE are running an Eco College Challenge for undergrad and grad students: come up with innovative and groundbreaking ideas for projects that would make their schools more environmentally responsible.
The team competition will be judged on three areas: Ecology (eco-benefits), Imagination (something cool and unique), and Economics (all about the Benjamins vs. Benefit)
Teams have until December 1st to apply. The entries will be reviewed, and the top 10 ideas will be posted on mtvU’s site on January 15 for public voting. The winning project’s school will receive $25,000 in grants to implement the idea, plus an mtvU Earth Day music festival on their campus. Official Rules.
They are even helping you get started, by providing some project planning advice and more info on key issues such as energy, green building, procurement and waste (each college student produces 640 pounds of waste a year!).
I want to join in on the fun! Let’s see all you students get started!
