ASLA Partners with EPA and Other Groups in Campus RainWorks Challenge

Washington, D.C., January 24, 2013 -- The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is jointly holding a green infrastructure design competition at colleges and universities with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Water, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the Water Environment Federation.
 
The Campus RainWorks Challenge is open to undergraduate and graduate student teams, who will create an innovative green infrastructure design for a site on their campus showing how managing stormwater at its source can benefit the campus community and the environment. Winning teams will earn a cash prize, as well as research funds for their faculty advisor to conduct research on green infrastructure.
 
ASLA will provide volunteer judges for the first and second rounds and will host the final round of judging in the spring. Winners will be announced on April 22.
 
“ASLA is very pleased to work in partnership with EPA on the Campus RainWorks Challenge,” said Nancy Somerville, Hon. ASLA, executive vice president and CEO of ASLA. “Sustainable design truly transforms the places where we live, study, and play, including college campuses. The students participating in this competition are creating models that will benefit future generations of students and the environment.”
