The winners of Montgomery College’s first Efficiency Contest were announced last Wednesday. They are listed below.   The MC Green Team wants to thank all the students, faculty, and staff that submitted proposals.  We were impressed with the quality of the proposals.  The MC Green Team will now begin to explore how the college can implement these proposals as well as other related projects.

The MC Green Team wants to thank the Montgomery College Foundation for funding the awards for this contest.  None of this would have been possible without their support.  This contest gives you an idea of the nature and the quality of the initiatives the Montgomery College Foundation supports at the college.
