The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced a poster contest to highlight green infrastructure and low-impact development projects in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas. Did you build a parking garage with a green roof? Do your city government buildings harvest rainwater? The EPA wants to hear about projects like these in preparation for the EPA Region 6 Stormwater Conference.

Anyone who has developed or is working on a project using green infrastructure or low-impact development is encouraged to submit a poster. Entries are due by Friday, Sept. 25.

First- and second-place prizes will be awarded for municipal or private professionals (for example, stormwater program operators, developers, or landscape architects), as will a first-place prize for student entries. Poster authors can present their submissions at the upcoming 17th annual EPA Region 6 stormwater conference in Hot Springs, Arkansas, Oct. 18-23.

After the conference, all posters will be highlighted on the Region 6 green infrastructure web page. Click here for complete contest rules and criteria.

Green infrastructure uses natural hydrologic features to manage water and provide environmental and community benefits, including pollution reduction, flood control and water-use efficiency. As climate change affects our communities in different ways, implementing green infrastructure techniques becomes more important than ever in improving resiliency, says the EPA.
