P3 Student Design Competition
- People, Prosperity and the Planet

EPA's P3 – People, Prosperity and the Planet—Program is a unique college competition for designing solutions for a sustainable future. P3 offers students quality hands-on experience that brings their classroom learning to life.

TechConnect is proud to host EPA’s P3 National Sustainable Design Expo, supporting college student teams as they showcase their innovative solutions to real-world sustainability challenges. We thank the EPA and all of the participating teams for their efforts, and please join us at the TechConnect World Innovation Conference at the Gaylord National Convention Center, May 15-16, 2017.


What is EPA's P3 Competition?

P3 stands for people, prosperity and the planet. For this annual event, teams of college students consider all three as they design tangible, cutting-edge solutions to real-world problems. They create; they innovate; they strive to make a difference. P3 aims to engage and educate the next generation of scientists about sustainability, spark innovative and sustainability technologies and support their use around the world. With an original grant of $15,000, the student teams develop their designs through the school year and to showcase their work at the TechConnect World Innovation Conference and Expo. Prior to the Expo, P3 teams submit their project reports to compete for a second grant of $75,000 to implement their designs and potentially bring them to the marketplace.
