Students with Climate Change Ideas can Win $50,000

UW-Madison students will have the chance to submit their ideas to the third annual Climate Leadership Challenge. Put on by the Nelson Institute Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment (SAGE), the goal of this competition is to promote students thinking about solutions or products that will combat climate change.

Students from any department are welcome to enter. Proposals will be due on Friday, March 25, 2011. The annual UW-Madison Nelson Institute Earth Day conference will showcase the six winning teams and spotlight the winner of the challenge.

The UW news release provides a bit more background on the competition as well as mentioning some of last years winning ideas. For further reading on climate change, see our recommended reading lists, available by sub-topic.
