Loyola encourages students to be sustainable with competition

March 11, 2011

In an effort to make campus more eco-friendly, students at Loyola University New Orleans are encouraged to create sustainability projects to be instituted this fall. Loyola’s Association of Students for Sustainability has issued a call for proposals for its Green for Green Sustainable Initiatives Competition.

The winning proposal will receive up to $5,000 in funding. In addition, the top three placing individuals or team members will receive $300 each for first place, $200 each for second place and $100 each for third place.

“With this project, we can unleash students’ creative ideas on what the campus can do to become more green,” said Josh Daly, associate chaplain and adviser for the Loyola University Community Action Program and LASS. “Students can influence Loyola’s sustainability and at the same time learn how to be a good steward of the environment.”

Project applications are due Friday, March 18 at noon and must be filled out electronically on the LASS website.
