2012 U.S. EPA People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Competition

Come support a team of award-winning students from your alma mater, the University of Illinois, who are coming to Washington DC to exhibit their innovative solution to a challenge in sustainability!


A team of award-winning students from your alma mater, University of Illinois at Champaign, is coming to Washington, DC, Earth Day weekend -- April 21-23 -- to exhibit their innovative solution to a challenge in sustainability.  Their design project won the prestigious U.S. EPA People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Award in 2010 or 2011, and they will be showcasing their progress at the National Sustainable Design Expo on the National Mall between 13th and 14th Streets- rain or shine!

Your school's team is one of 24 teams from across the country that was awarded a $75,000 grant at the 2010 or 2011 competitions.  Their award went to further develop their sustainable solutions, turn them into a business or implement them in communities. At this year's expo, you also can see 45 new teams from across the country competing for the 2012 award as well as nonprofit and government organizations exhibiting their programs in the sustainability arena. These innovators together in one place makes for an exciting event devoted to the future of environmental protection.

The expo is open to the public Saturday, April 21 (12 p.m. - 6 p.m.), Sunday, April 22 (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.) and Monday, April 23 (9 a.m. - 1 p.m.).
