About the 2017 Challenge
The 2017 Green Energy Challenge asked teams to design an energy upgrade for an organization in their community. This year’s challenge also included a community service requirement. Teams were required to create a volunteer plan of action and demonstrate in their proposal the activity and number of hours volunteered at the facility they chose to use for their project.
After scoring the three teams for both content and presentation, the jury selected Iowa State University as the 2017 Challenge winner. Second place went to the University of Washington and third place was awarded to the University of Toronto.
The jury paid close attention to the professionalism and presentation skills of each member of each team. Marcelious Wyatt, representing Iowa State, won the award for Best Presenter for 2017.
Another part of the GEC activities was the Poster Competition. All of the Student Chapters that had entered the competition were encouraged to offer a poster presentation of their project. Following a round of reviewing and judging, Ball State University won this year’s Poster Competition followed by Illinois State and Wayne State.
