P3 Award
Alex Steffen, 23 Mar 04

Know an American college student who's got the sustainable design bug? Send 'em towards the EPA's P3 (for people, prosperity and the planet) Award competition, which offers prizes of US$10,000 and the shot at resources to realize their sustainable design vision:

"Among the critical components to promote a systematic shift towards more environmentally benign and sustainable products, processes and systems, is increased awareness and training. It is essential that all involved in the design, discovery, demonstration, and implementation of innovations understand the fundamental methodologies, techniques, and principles that underlie sustainability and design. In addition, it is imperative to recognize that scientific and engineering innovation play a key role in addressing the persistent challenges of under-development in the world. Fundamental to the success of sustainable designs are considerations of people, prosperity, and the planet that recognize the needs, available resources, and limitations of the intended user."
