Now, these 16 schools are competing to move on to the next round. We have already received many outstanding submissions from students in the form of essays, photos and videos highlighting why their school deserves to be part of the “Environmental Eight.”
Although many schools have already submitted, a few have gone that extra mile that will definitely be recognized the judges. We've received over 100 pictures with one school leading the pack at 28, and another two not far behind. We’ve also received multiple detailed essays from students and faculty at several institutions, and one school already submitted three unique videos.
Submissions are being accepted until next Friday - March 8, so if you’re a member of the student body or faculty at one of the “Sustainable 16” schools, be sure to get involved and encourage your peers to do so as well.
For everyone following the competition, be sure to check back on March 22 to find out who made it to the next round! You can also receive real-time updates on Twitter by following @enviance and #EnviroU.
