Rutgers and Cornell Pass MTV's Exam with Flying Colors!
Well folks, MTV announced yesterday that the two winners of their Break the Addiction Final Exam, which challenged college student groups across the country to submit tangible evidence of educational activities as well as policy advocacy to reduce their school's global warming pollution are Rutgers and Cornell University. So what did they win for helping to save the planet? Well, an MTV eco-renovation for their student centers worth up to $10,000 plus the knowledge that they helped educate and inspire people across both campuses to help stop global warming. As an added bonus they’ll both have representatives featured on a special edition of MTV's TRL on Monday, April 23 that will also feature an interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger. The challenge itself was the product of collaboration between thinkMTV and the Campus Climate Challenge, a project of 30 leading environmental and social justice organizations working with hundreds of high schools and colleges to help them make their schools greener. Go Rutgers and Cornell!
