17th Annual P3 Awards: A National Student Design Competition Focusing on People, Prosperity and the Planet

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – as part of its People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Award Program – is seeking applications proposing to research, develop, design, and demonstrate solutions to real world challenges.

The P3 competition highlights the use of scientific principles in creating innovative technology-based projects that achieve the mutual goals of improved quality of life, economic prosperity and protection of the planet – people, prosperity, and the planet. The EPA offers the P3 competition to respond to the needs of people in the United States (U.S.)—including those in small, rural, tribal and/or disadvantaged communities.

Please see the People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Student Design Competition website for more details about this program. Proposed projects must embody the P3 approach, which is that they have the intention and capability to simultaneously improve the quality of people’s lives, provide economic benefits and protect the environment.

The four research areas include:

  • EPA-G2020-P3-Q1 – Air Quality
  • EPA-G2020-P3-Q2 – Safe and Sustainable Water Resources
  • EPA-G2020-P3-Q3 – Sustainable and Healthy Communities
  • EPA-G2020-P3-Q4 – Chemical Safety

The closing date for applications is November 19, 2019.
