ICC Students and members of the ICC Sustainability Committee participated in an open contest featuring presentations from ICC Students on topics related to environmental stewardship and conservation.
The Fall 2015 Contest featured an opening presentation from Anthony Corso, Chief Innovation Officer for the City of Peoria and former Director of Green Building Programs at ICC. Corso spoke on the value of green civic improvements and discussed some of the challenges and potential solutions for the City of Peoria.
Thirteen students then presented to two panels of judges that included members of the ICC Sustainability Community, ICC Interim President Dr. William Tammone, and ICC Staff. Students presented research on topics including invasive species of plants and animals to Central Illinois, Electronic Waste and Recycling options, Solar Energy Options, and more!
