A few of our SoE students make top 10 in the Rainforest pitch competition


Congratulations Tina, Levi, and Mostafa! We are very proud of you.

From UNM Rainforest Innovations: "A 9-month-long public health crisis, ninety-eight percent of classes being held online, and a complete lack of normal social interaction could have negatively impacted the Fall 2020 Lobo Rainforest Pitch Competition. But instead, students submitted 49 ideas to the all-virtual competition, providing judges with some of the best ideas the competition has seen to date. This semester the competition was completely virtual again. Typically, students get first-round feedback and finalists get a second chance to impress the judges.

The judges’ choices are in and 10 students were awarded their share of the $4750 prize pool." Read the full article
