Sustainability Reverse Pitch Competition

The Sustainability Institute for Regional Transformations (SIRT) and WiSys are pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for our students – a Sustainability Reverse Pitch Competition! Please consider including this Competition in your spring courses as an assignment or an extra credit opportunity. The competition is open to students from all three campuses. We have representatives from six different organizations presenting sustainability problems they face and they are looking for possible solutions from student teams. On February 12 the representatives will formally present their problems and students will be able to form teams and select the problem they want to tackle. The teams will check in with the representatives occasionally as they work on the problem and then they will present their solutions on April 23.

Participating businesses and organizations:
Oshkosh Corporation/Oshkosh Defense
Oshkosh Public Library
Planet Perk
UW Oshkosh


Student from any UWO campus- Fond du Lac, Fox Cities, Oshkosh

February 12, 2020: Hear pitches, create teams, meet with representatives
April 23, 2020: Final reverse pitch competition and judging

Both events start at 5:30 PM and will be held in the Culver Family Welcome Center Ballroom.
