POWER Challenge Week 3

Week three of the POWER Challenge is officially complete! Congratulations to Fred Brown Hall who is currently in first place for week three. They jumped ahead Hess, who had been in the lead for a while. Thanks to our residence halls for working so hard this month!

Our office hosted Campus Sustainability Day last Thursday, and so many people came by to see what environmental groups were doing around Knoxville. It was a great day filled with food, fun, and cool giveaways. Thank you to everyone who participated!


The residence halls also did some great events for their residents. Below are just some of the many great submissions from all of the halls.

Fred Brown made a bulletin board that was made using recycled paper and features fun facts about recycling.

Morrill Hall did a floor program where they went to the rock and painted it! What a fun way to incorporate UT traditions into the challenge.

Massey Hall had an event called the “Shrinky Dink Program”, where they used plastic containers to make key chains. This was done by tracing a picture, cutting out the trace, hole punching it, and putting it in the oven until the film shrinks to the size of the key chain. They used plastics from the recycling, which is a great way to promote up-cycling!

North Carrick made this bulletin board which encourages energy conservation in the “Guide to Being Reasonably Lit”.

This week, the POWER Challenge comes to an end. As we celebrate the end of this month, come to our final event Yoga on the Quad, on Thursday at 5PM on HSS Lawn. Thank you for everyone for supporting our initiative this month!
