Beyond the Competition

Facing a challenging year

With U.S. colleges and universities facing a challenging academic year with hybrid schedules, online learning, and additional safety measures in place to protect the health of students, faculty and staff on campus, the Campus Race to Zero Waste is offering a few ways to engage in the spring 2021 competition.  

 

All colleges and universities are invited to participate in the Campus Race to Zero Waste 2021 Competition this spring and choose one or more of the main or special categories. However, if your college or university is unable to track and report on waste due to capacity or safety reasons this spring, that’s ok! Campuses are encouraged to go ahead and register for the competition, choose “Case Study Competition” under “Special Categories” and launch an online education and engagement campaign during the February/March competition timeframe to keep your campus community informed and involved in waste reduction policies and practices on campus.

Steps to Engage:
1. Register for Campus Race to Zero Waste 2021 by completing the Profile Information Survey in ReTRAC.
2. Choose “Case Study Competition” under the “Special Categories” section.
