SEEDS Carleton, with the support of the Ottawa Valley Chapter (OVC) of the A&WMA, would like to give 4 students a chance compete once again in the Environmental Challenge International, or ECi, presented as part of A&WMA’s annual conference and exhibition (ACE 2011) in Orlando, Florida from June 20-24, 2011. ECi 2011 is a great opportunity to present your solution to industry professionals, to network and most importantly, to have a chance at the price money!
The title of this year’s challenge is “A 2025 Federal Renewable Portofolio“. The full information documents can be found here: http://events.awma.org/ace2011/yp_students.php
To help you prepare your submission, SEEDS will be holding a one-day workshop on Saturday May 14th beginning at 9:30 a.m. in ME 3444 where students will be able to talk to local experts, to form groups of 4 and begin working on their 5-page (max) proposals. Local experts and professionals will be available from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (noon) to discuss with students and point them in the right direction. Students have until 4:00 p.m. to work in the boardroom. By Monday, May 16th at 9:00 a.m. each group must submit a 5-page (max) proposal of their solution to firstname.lastname@example.org. The solutions will be judged by the A&WMA experts and the the winning team will be awarded a chance to compete in the ECi in Orlando. The winning team will have until May 28 to further develop their proposal and submit it to the competition organizers. A poster and presentation must be prepared for the conference itself.
Come prepared with your ideas and enthusiasm! Only student members of the OVC-A&WMA are eligible to participate however, if you are not a member you can join on Saturday May 14 for a reduced membership price of $10. Lunch will be provided by SEEDS.
