Student Competition

Northwest Corridor event organizers, in partnership with the United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) and the Coalition of Sustainable Communities, have asked local manufacturers to identify challenges they face or improvements they desire based on sustainable development goals outlined by the United Nations. Sustainable goals fall under one of four areas:

  • Economic
  • Social
  • Environmental
  • Institutional

Challenge statements submitted by businesses are the basis for a competition that asks students to help manufacturers find solutions. Community partners serve as judges, and student entries will be shared with manufacturers and showcased throughout October in live and virtual forums.
