Three teams top Olin Sustainability Case Competition Business School’s fourth annual Olin Sustainability Case Competition challenged students to propose plans for developing more than 10,000 vacant lots in St. Louis. Twenty five teams with students from different disciplines across the university entered the competition. Three teams made it to the finals. Judges were so impressed with the proposals that two teams split first prize, earning $4,000 each, and the third team was awarded $2,000. From solar panels to community service projects, the students came up with creative ideas in the contest, titled “Blight, Plight and Urban Flight: Stimulating the Sustainable Development of Vacant Land in the City of St. Louis.” Judges said these ideas could be applied to any city with a vacant property problem.
