2018-2019 Sustainable Growth Challenge


The Sustainable Growth Challenge, an annual collegiate competition hosted by the Maryland Sustainable Growth Commission, engages students from across the state in planning, sustainability and reinvestment issues.

The competition enables students to conduct community planning exercises, analyze economic, social and environmental aspects of sustainable growth and develop creative community solutions. The competition provides students the opportunity to interact with local leaders and engage in their own community planning processes.

Learn more and enter the challenge here.

Winning teams will be recognized at the commission’s annual awards ceremony to be held in the spring of 2019.
