USU Sponsors "Clear the Air" Contest

Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013

illustration for 'clean the air' contest at USU

Utah State University students are encouraged to participate in the C. Arden Pope “Clear the Air” contest to generate ideas to reduce air pollution in northern Utah. There are cash prizes for the best entries from both undergraduate and graduate student entries, plus a poster contest. 


Dr. Pope is a BYU economist who is internationally known for his ground breaking work on the effects of particulate air pollution on mortality and health, including cancer, lung and cardiovascular disease. The contest is being initiated by a group of concerned USU citizens from Cache Valley.


Entries should be submitted to the Northern Utah Clear the Air Facebook page via the Essay Contest.


The deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, March 8.


Donations to the prize fund are accepted. Send checks made out to Utah State University (write in memo line: Clear the Air Contest) to USU VP for Business & Finance, UMC 1445, Logan, UT 84322-1445. These dollars go directly to the student winners, similar to a scholarship. To Credit card donations can be made online (there is a 2-3% fee for credit card donations) and choose "Other" and specify “Clear the Air.”
