Bicentennial Student Sustainability Challenge



Launched in August 2020, the Bicentennial Student Sustainability Challenge, impact200, aims to bring students and recent graduates together to form teams and submit proposals for transformative projects (Bright Spots) to enhance the sustainability of our campuses, our city, and the world.

The ten finalist teams have been selected in the impact200 Bicentennial student sustainability challenge.

From the 44 initial proposals entered last year, 22 semi-finalists were selected in January. In March, teams pitched their ideas via video conference to a judging panel consisting of four of McGill’s emeriti professors. In addition to their presentations, each team submitted a written proposal, a 60-second video pitch, and a digital poster.

Each of the finalist teams will receive up to $5,000 and support from expert mentors to develop their proof-of-concept over the summer. The teams will pitch their final proposals to a jury in the fall and winners will announced in late November.

Congratulations to the ten teams on making it to the next phase of impact200!
