Participants can answer trivia questions about sustainability and spin the prize wheel. Possible prizes include recycled pens, Frisbees, and reusable bags. A recycling display will also be available to help students brush up on their recycling knowledge.

Later in the day, keynote speaker John Dernbach will speak in his seminar, “Acting as if Tomorrow Matters: Accelerating the Transition to Sustainability” from 7-8 p.m. in Chapel 101. Dernbach is a Distinguished Professor of Law at Widener’s Harrisburg campus. He is the leader of a project called Sustaining America, which reviews sustainable development efforts in the United States and then offers solutions for the future. The first 20 attendees will receive a free sustainability Frisbee.

Before Dernbach’s presentation, the LVC student winner of the “Greening the Campus Contest” will be announced. Students were encouraged to submit proposals about ways LVC can become more sustainable. The winner will receive an iPad mini.
