‘Tacoma Green Infrastructure Challenge’ Deadline Extended to Jan. 15

The City of Tacoma, Metro Parks Tacoma and the Port of Tacoma have extended the “Tacoma Green Infrastructure Challenge” entry deadline to Jan.15.  The registration deadline remains unchanged and teams are asked to register no later than Dec. 15.

“The deadline was extended by a month to allow students to participate over their winter break and to take a little pressure off the teams over the holidays,” said Jessica Knickerbocker, competition coordinator and engineer with the City of Tacoma’s environmental services department.

This design competition challenges teams to tackle one of three real-world site designs to showcase sustainable solutions for stormwater runoff. The challenge provides participants an opportunity to receive hands-on learning, networking opportunities, and recognition for their creative and innovative engineering design.

Entries are being accepted in three design challenge categories:

  • Industrial Redevelopment - Port of Tacoma
  • Urban Redevelopment - Metro Parks, Tacoma
  • Green Roadway - City of Tacoma

The winning team from each category will receive a $5,000 cash prize,and will be featured on Tacoma Report and in Tacoma Today, the City’se-newsletter.
