Champlain students live green lifestyles for a month to win national environmental competition.
For Champlain College, 2019 was the year of the environment. Champlain was ranked as the 25th Greenest College in the US by the Princeton Review, we earned a silver STARS sustainability rating, and five of our students were finalists in the nationwide service and sustainability competition, Project Green Challenge.
Run by the organization Turning Green, “Project Green Challenge is a 30-day challenge during the month of October, designed to educate and empower [high school and college] students to make permanent environmental and sustainable changes in their lives and their community,” explains senior Broadcast Media Production major and Project Green Challenge finalist Julia Leonard.
