UCLA students receive 1st place demonstration project award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
A team of UCLA students won first place in the demonstration project category for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s eighth annual Campus RainWorks Challenge, a national competition that engages college students in the design of on-campus green infrastructure solutions to help address stormwater pollution. The team’s project, “Little Steps to a Sustainable Future,” redesigned a local elementary school campus to incorporate a variety of green infrastructure practices. Extensive stakeholder engagement across the school district led to a realistic design capable of managing stormwater runoff onsite and providing hands-on environmental education that will connect students to their watershed.
