contest winnersMichelle Zucker, a student at Penn State, and Emily Saunders, a student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, have won US$10,000 and up to US$25,000 of in-kind staff time to support implementation of a project in India that will reactivate an abandoned factory as a water filter factory and a start-up community factory, providing migrant workers with access to clean water, self-grown food and native materials for building shelters. Michelle and Emily worked closely with Potters for Peace in preparing their contest entry and they will be collaborating with us on the implementation of this project.

The contest was sponsored by AECOM, a company that works to create, enhance and sustain the world’s built, natural and social environments.
