Green Innovation Contest for College Students

ecomagination challengeecomagination challengeThe mtvU GE ecomagination Challenge is asking individual and teams of college students from around the country to develop new, creative ways to green their campus. They are looking for innovative and groundbreaking ideas that can have a positive impact at the local level or the global level - or both.

Applicants will submit ideas until December 1, 2006. A panel of expert judges from mtvU and GE will select 10 finalists in early January 2007. These applicants, and their proposed campus greening projects, are likely to be profiled online and on air by mtvU over the following months. In March 2007, the judges will select one winning idea from among the finalists. mtvU viewers will also have a chance to support their favorite project through an online viewer poll that the judges will consider in making their final selection.

In order to participate, you must be at least 18 years of age or older at the time of entry and currently enrolled as a part-time or full-time student at a nationally accredited United States college or university.

The winning entrant’s school will receive a $25,000 grant to begin to implement the project and a free mtvU concert for the campus on Earth Day in April, 2007.

Remember the contest ends December 1, 2006. To find out more about the challenge or to submit an idea, click here.
