Transforming our Tomorrow: A New Clean Energy Vision<>

UB Sustainability is searching for individual students or student groups from across New York State to present their passion in creating a sustainable world through clean energy.  Students that have completed a project or program should apply to present their work in a five minute speech with minimal use of graphics.   Students that have an idea for a new policy, program, or invention can pitch it to the audience. Lastly, groups of students can present their work in a PechaKucha-style using images that automatically advance for a total of two minutes. For more information, please visit: or see the attached flyer.

The presentations will be scored by a panel of judges based on their creativity, delivery and research on their chosen idea. First place will receive $3,000, second place $1,500, and third place $750. One project will be awarded a bonus prize of $200 for its consideration on the social impacts of clean energy (this could mean their project’s implications for low-income communities, developing countries, gender equality, education, racial equity and more).

All students that participate will receive a professionally edited video of their presentation for their portfolio.
