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. This summer we began reaching out to academic programs around the state to elicit their interest in this falls competition.
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 them the opportunity to interact with local leaders and engage in their own community planning processes.
