Take the President's Sustainable Solutions Challenge

The President’s Sustainable Solutions Challenge encourages student-led innovation in sustainability on CU campuses. Students with ideas for sustainability innovations on their campus will compete for up to $3,000 in cash prizes while gaining experience in leadership, entrepreneurship, and social enterprise. If you have an idea for improving environmental quality, economic and resource efficiency, and/or social equity on your campus, register to participate in the Challenge by March 9.

The President’s Sustainable Solutions Challenge (PSSC) will be a two-part event, culminating in the President’s Sustainable Solution Grand Prize of a $2,000 on the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, April 22. The Challenge will first award a prize of $1,000 to one team from each of the four University of Colorado campuses in mid-April. The top two teams from each campus will advance to compete for the Grand Prize.
