Redinger one of four winners in Sustainability Idea Competition

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Dec. 2, 2010 – The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Southeast Missouri State University has announced the winners of the 2010 Sustainability Idea Competition held during the recent Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The competition sought the best ideas for promoting a campus culture of sustainability. The competition was jointly sponsored by the Office of the President, the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and the University Sustainability Committee. Submissions were evaluated by a student, staff, faculty, and administrator panel.

The panel recognized four first-place winning submissions and three honorable mention submissions.  Redinger was announced as the winner of the Staff category.

Here is a summary of his submission:
Signs of Change–The proposal from Redinger is to use appropriate signage on campus to call attention to current efforts to improve sustainability on campus and to encourage even greater awareness and interest in sustainability. The proposed signage would highlight visible “signs of change” taking place at Southeast and would be viewed by both current members of the University community and visitors to the campus. Redinger indicated that signage is relatively inexpensive and provides “a lot of bang for the buck” in promoting sustainability on campus.
