Students who are interested in SU are generally curious, adventurous, and excited about attending college in the heart of Seattle. You can learn more about our academic programs on our website, as well as some basic facts about our campus. As your students prepare to apply to Seattle U, here are a few dates to keep in mind:

 
University of Portland Honors Program:

The Alaska Airlines Imagine Tomorrow challenges 9th through 12th graders to seek new ways to support the transition to sustainability.  Students research complex topics related to sustainability, then innovate technologies, designs, and/or plans to mobilize behavior.  They forge connections in their communities and create positive change.  In this competition, as in life, solutions are limited only by imagination.

Registration will close April 1.  Each school is allowed up to 2 projects per challenge topic with a maximum of 6 projects total.  Register early to hold your spot!

Compete for Cash Prizes!

Over 60 cash awards will honor students, their projects, and their schools.

Show others the power of your ideas

Students in the arts, sciences, engineering, and social sciences discover how to create positive change in their communities.

Register for free!

Housing and dining on campus are free, too, so it costs next to nothing to compete. 

Topics and Challenges

This year, we have three challenges:

  • The Itron Food, Energy, and Water Challenge
  • The Boeing Aerospace and Transportation Challenge
  • The McKinstry Built Environment Challenge 

And four approach options:

  • Technology: Creating a product or employing technology, using the tools of science and engineering, to improve efficiency or reduce demand on natural resources.
  • Design: Creating a design or concept that will reduce the impact on natural resources and support a sustainable future.
  • Behavior/Policy: Creating a plan, through public policy, advocacy, or other means, to change the way people make decisions; improving education, affecting policy, and/or working with communities to create local change.
  • Multi-Approach: Creating a holistic solution, drawing on two or more of the approaches above, to address natural resource challenges.

Choose one challenge and one approach per team. Judges will be looking to be sure you clearly articulate the approach you took to the challenge.  Should you choose the multi-approach route, be sure your project effectively covers each approach you are addressing!

 

Remember that each school is limited to 2 teams per challenge, with a maximum of 6 teams! 

Be sure to communicate with other advisors and students at your schools to ensure your projects don't exceed this limit!
