Students, it's your turn to leave your mark on Philadelphia! Help the Water Department raise awareness about the new tools in our neighborhoods and inspire residents to uncover the benefits of green stormwater infrastructure.
The Philadelphia Water Department is hosting a design competition, Uncover the Green, for undergraduate and graduate students. The goal of the competition is to create an eye-catching medallion that helps mark Philadelphia’s new green stormwater tools, which soak up rainwater as it runs off of streets and sidewalks throughout the City. Furthermore, Uncover the Green also focuses on Philadelphia’s traditional water infrastructure (such as sewers); the vast network of pipes underground is critical in ensuring the success of the above ground green stormwater tools. So while we’re uncovering designs for the green tools above ground, we are challenging competition participants to delve deeper by producing a second design for new manhole covers too!
The winning designs for a green tool medallion and accompanying manhole cover will be placed on sidewalks and streets throughout the City for decades!
Uncover the Green is open exclusively to graduate and undergraduate students enrolled at Philadelphia based colleges & universities.
All entries must be submitted by March 28, 2014 by 5:00pm!
