      EPA ANNOUNCES SUSTAINABILITY COMPETITION FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS
      The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced a new P3
      Award: A National Student Design Competition for Sustainability. It 
      will
      provide grants to teams of college students to research, develop and
      design sustainable solutions to environmental challenges. P3--for
      people, prosperity and the planet--has two phases. Initially, teams
      compete for $10,000 grants. EPA will support up to 50 student design
      projects during the 2004-2005 academic year for research and 
      development
      of their sustainable design. This first phase is meant to encourage
      creativity, allowing the teams to: 1) define a technical challenge to
      sustainability; 2) discuss the relationship of the challenge to people,
      prosperity and the planet; and 3) develop a design approach to address
      the challenge. Challenges from a wide range of categories will be
      considered, including agriculture, built environment, ecosystem, 
      energy,
      resources and water. In spring 2005, the P3 grant recipients will be
      invited to Washington, DC to compete for the P3 Award, which provides
      additional funding for further design development and implementation.
      The award is open to undergraduate or graduate teams in colleges,
      universities and other post-secondary institutions in the United 
      States.
      Closing date: March 25, 2004. More:
