Campus Conservation Nationals

The National Wildlife Federation partnered with Lucid Design Group, U.S. Green Building Council, and the Alliance to Save Energy to bring you Campus Conservation Nationals.

Campus Conservation Nationals (CCN) is a nationwide resource use reduction competition that challenges college and university campuses to achieve the greatest electricity and water use reductions during a three week period. 

How It Works

Between February and April participating colleges and universities compete to achieve the greatest possible energy and water reductions in residence halls. Schools choose to compete against buildings on their own campus, in a state or regional competition, or against a select group of peer institutions, with savings from all participants accumulating as we strive to achieve a national challenge goal.
