The first fall energy challenge on IU campus officially began this afternoon with a parade led by the popular Jefferson Street Parade Band cross the campus.
Energy Challenge is a contest between dorms, classrooms and administrative buildings to encourage energy and water conservation. This year was the first time it is held during the fall semester.
Rebecca Lowe, a green team leader with the School of Informatics and Commuting, told us the purpose of the kick-off today is to raise awareness on campus.
“Just making people be aware of that first the energy challenge has started today and will last for the next month,” Lowe said, “and B just to get people involved and hopefully get more people to participate and going green.”
The Energy Challenge lasts from today till Nov 3rd.
