P3 Student Design Competition

Information for P3 Teams

Reporting expectations for new grantees are described in the Terms and Conditions of your grant, which accompanied the award letter to your institution. Once your project has been funded, your team is expected to work on the design during the fall and spring semesters. Then, April 11-12, 2015, your team and faculty advisor will come to the Washington, D.C. metro area to exhibit your technology at the National Sustainable Design Expo and participate in the EPA P3 Award Ceremony. The Expo is open to the public Saturday and Sunday with judging on both days. Government agencies and nonprofit organizations will exhibit alongside the P3 teams. The 2015 P3 Team Information Package is now available.

Your team is also expected to submit a written Project Report describing your project and your team proposal for a Phase II grant award. Project Report Instructions are now available. Instructions regarding report submittal will be posted soon.
