EPA Names Campus RainWorks Challenge Winners

First place teams will receive a $2,000 student prize to be split among team members and a $3,000 faculty prize to support green infrastructure research and education. Second place teams will receive a $1,000 student prize and a $2,000 faculty prize.


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the winners of its seventh annual Campus RainWorks Challenge, a national competition that engages college students in the design of on-campus green infrastructure solutions to address stormwater pollution.

Through this year's Challenge, EPA invited student teams to compete in two design categories: the Master Plan category, which examines how green infrastructure can be broadly integrated across campus, and the Demonstration Project category, which focuses on how green infrastructure can address stormwater pollution at a specific site on campus. With the help of a faculty advisor, teams of students focused their expertise, creativity, and energy on the challenges of stormwater management and showcased the environmental, economic, and social benefits of green infrastructure.

The Challenge winners are:

• University of Oregon (1st Place Demonstration Project Category) - Watch the team's video about their project HERE.

• University of Louisiana at Lafayette (1st Place Master Plan Category) - Watch the team's video about their project HERE.

• University of Arizona (2nd Place Demonstration Project Category) - Watch the team's video about their project HERE.

• Florida International University (2nd Place Master Plan Category) - Watch the team's video about their project HERE.

EPA also recognized Utah State University for honorable mention in the Demonstration Project category and the University of Arizona for honorable mention in the Master Plan category.
