Competition a showcase for student sustainability projects

Cash prizes are at stake in a competition to showcase student research on energy conservation and renewable energy.

The Green Future Competition, organized by the office of the University’s environmental sustainability advocate, offers 300 for the best undergraduate submission, sponsored by the Outstanding Scholar’s Program; $500 for the best graduate entry; and $300 for the second-place graduate project.

Submissions must be an original work — video, audio, or text document. A panel of experts will judge them for:

  • originality;
  • quality of the presentation;
  • potential for mitigating climate change; and
  • potential for commercial application.

“Last year we received several excellent submissions, a clear sign that our students are concerned about climate change and are thinking creatively about ways to mitigate it,” says UWindsor environmental sustainability advocate Tanya Basok.

The due date for entries is October 10. Send submissions to Dr. Basok at
