Kent State University at Trumbull Students Present Earth Day ServicesPosted Apr. 30, 2012
To celebrate Earth Day, Kent State University at Trumbull students presented their service projects, events or activities planned to a panel of judges. Nearly 14 groups presented on various topics ranging from identifying bike routes, to helping students get to campus, to showcasing how easy it can be for families to make their own rain barrel.
An anonymous donor provided monetary prizes for the winners of the competition—$200 for first place, $125 for second place and $75 for third place. Winners will be announced in May.
Student participants contributed more than 1,000 acts of green.
Last year, Kent State Trumbull received an honorable mention by the Earth Day Network for its Earth Day efforts during a national competition. The competition has now extended internationally. There are approximately 300 universities from 51 countries competing to generate the most acts of green at their campuses. Kent State Trumbull currently sits in 47th position, but hopes to make a top 10 finish with the amazing work done by its students.
