Alumni Win Natural Talent Design Competition
Wednesday, June 9, 2010
Ellen Anderson (BSAS '08), Sarah Ekblad (BSAS '08), and Stephen Truppe (BSAS '08) were awarded first place from the Chicago Chapter of the United States Green Building Council for their entry "Troika" in the USGBC Natural Talent design competition.
According to the organizers, the "competition's parameters were simple: design a home for a suburban location to LEED standards while adhering to a strict budget. The contest aimed to emphasize the need for affordable, sustainable communities that keep residents and revenue within the community, as well as to empower students and young professionals to become future leaders in the green building movement."
Ellen, Sarah, and Stephen were awarded a cash prize and will be registered to attend "Greenbuild," USGBC's annual conference. USGBC will also pay their travel expenses to the conference.
Congratulations Ellen, Sarah, and Stephen!
