14th Annual P3 Awards: A National Student Design Competition for Sustainability Focusing on People, Prosperity and the Planet

Open Date: 12/05/2016 – Close Date: 02/03/2017

This college student design competition highlights the use of scientific and engineering principles in creating innovative projects to research and develop sustainable solutions to real world challenges.

The P3 Award competition is a two-phase team competition. For the first phase, interdisciplinary student teams submit proposals to compete for $15,000 grants for project ideas addressing environmental solutions for a sustainable future. Recipients use the funding to research and develop their design projects during the academic year. In the spring, teams submit their designs, reports and proposals to compete for P3 Phase II grant funding of up to $75,000 to further the project design, implement it in the field, and move it to the marketplace.
