The Spartan Eco-Challenge

The Spartan Eco Challenge is an opportunity for MSU students to win prizes for participating in various sustainability-related challenges.

Some simple challenges can be completed online, often via social media. If you give us your Twitter handle and/or Instagram username, we will follow you and you can earn points for posting pictures and tweeting. Other challenges, which are worth more points, give students an incentive to visit various places on campus that are involved with sustainability

For a full list of detailed challenges, dates and times, check out our take action page!
