2019 Events Schedule
Monday, April 22, 2019
C4 members set up a promotional and informational table with games and prizes for awareness of environmental concerns, issues in topics such as the right way to recycle. Electronic Pledges will also be available where BSU community members can electronically pledge their commitment to responsible environmental acts.
Officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Prince George’s County Government will present an Earth Day presentation entitled: Rethink: Changing How We Think About Our Resources, with the overall theme of what we as individuals can do to reduce waste going to landfills. The presentation provides new information and tidbits many of us may not be aware of.
Students passionate about the environment and the environmental injustices surrounding them will share their original pieces of spoken word and poetry in the 5th annual Earth Day Poetry Slam on Wednesday in the Student Center Pub starting at 1pm. The event will be judged by a panel of judges and top 3 winners receive cash prizes!
