Fall 2016 Inter-Dorm Green Cup Challenge
By Matthew McKelvey '07, Eaglebrook Sustainability Coordinator
This fall the campus community competed once again in the Inter-Dorm Green Cup Challenge. Across all of the dormitories, the amount of energy that was conserved over the span of the month was greater than their totals from last year. During this competition, students and faculty are encouraged to construct a plan with their housemasters in order to decrease the amount of energy that is used on a weekly basis. The Sustainability Dorm Liaisons worked well with their dorms to develop a plan for the other students on their halls. The competition was quite close throughout the month but a couple of dorms separated themselves from the rest of the pack. Mayer House, in 3rd Place, put in a valiant effort and found much of its success because of the Sixth Form leadership. The race at the top was very close but Kravis House edged out Flagler House by a slim margin to take the Fall 2016 Dorm Green Cup Challenge. I thank all of the dorms for their support and although the challenge is over, I encourage the students to continue to work to conserve as much energy as possible to help Eaglebrook’s goals of sustainability.
