The A&WMA UMS Education Committee hosted the Student Environmental Challenge as part of the 2012 Conference on the Environment (COE). Undergraduate college students were presented with a topical, environmental "problem" to solve. Teams were scored on their written proposal and presentation. Scores were based on their logic, process, creativity, and ability to address political and social issues in addition to their technical strength and detail associated with the environmental challenge.
