The Make Orange Green POWER Challenge is a way for the UT community to demonstrate its commitment to reducing the university’s environmental impact. The POWER Challenge is a month-long competition that pits UT residence halls against each other in a battle to see which hall is the greenest. (POWER stands for Programs of Water, Energy, and Recycling).
A variety of different actions will award Res Halls points. Throughout the month a variety of prizes will go to RAs and residents with cool programs, awesome bulletin boards, and dedication to making their floor go green. But this is a Res Hall v Res Hall competition, so at the end of October the residence hall with the most points wins the POWER Challenge—along with bragging rights, the “Mo Green” trophy, and another TBD prize!
This year, Hess Hall took the title of POWER Challenge Champion. Below you’ll see where all the halls stacked up!
