"The Rush to Recycling Challenge targeted our next generation of Pennsylvanians to make recycling a way of life," Chnupa said during the award ceremony.
The challenge pitted colleges and universities across the Commonwealth against one another to see which school could increase its recycling percentage the most.
The challenge's overall goals were to encourage participation among colleges and universities that were not actively involved in recycling, while encouraging schools with established programs to further expand their efforts.
"At Carnegie Mellon we hope to make recycling a way of life among college students and have it transfer over into their adult lives," Barbara Kviz, campus Rush to Recycling coordinator, said. "The Rush initiative has assisted several colleges and universities in jump started their recycling initiatives. Even though the recycling contest is over, we need to keep improving our recycling efforts for Carnegie Mellon to be a leader in Green Practices."
Prize money is being used at each winning campus to further expand recycling.
Harrisburg Area Community College received an honorable mention for its computer and electronics "eCycling" initiative.
