Campus Conservation Nationals (CCN) is the largest conservation competition for colleges and universities in the world! This friendly competition measures the percent reduction of electricity and water usage in the residence buildings on campuses. Last year, the competition saved over 2 million kilowatt-hours of electricity and 1.5 million gallons of water! This year, our campus competition ran from February 24th to March 14th to help contribute to the 1,189,149 kWh and 287,948 gallons saved in the national competition thus far!
The results from this year’s inter-hall challenge CCN competition are finally in! The winner for the 2014 CCN Competition at Oregon State University is…(drumroll please!)…SACKETT HALL! Sackett Hall won with a 6.24% reduction in energy and water. The image below shows the standings for each of the halls. Congratulations to all of the halls!
Thank you to all the residents in the residence halls for participating in the competition. A special thank you also goes out to the Building Captains and EcoReps for promoting the competition in the halls!
