EPA is launching its third-annual Campus RainWorks Challenge, a prize contest that engages college students in developing innovative green infrastructure systems to reduce stormwater pollution and build resilience to climate change.

Through Campus RainWorks, teams of undergraduate and graduate students, working with a faculty advisor, develop a proposed green infrastructure project for their campuses, showing how managing stormwater at its source can benefit the community and the environment. Registration for the 2014 Challenge opens Sept. 2 and ends Oct. 3.

Registrants must submit their entries by Dec. 19. EPA will announce winning entries in April 2015.
