After a few wild days of recycle basketball, trash Minute-To-Win-It, sustainability trivia, and green pledging last weekend, the 2016 Green Greek Competition was a success. More than 180 students signed a Green Pledge and 29 Greek Chapters participated.

One chapter was outstanding in their commitment to the Green Greek Competition: PI KAPPA PHI (commonly known as Pi Kapps), led by Green Greek Representative Gavin Forster, won the competition and will receive $250 - and “green” bragging rights, of course. This chapter had 48 members take a Green pledge - some pledging to take shorter showers, others vowing to show their love for the earth, and some even pledging to join an environmental group on campus - and achieved 100 house game points.

In second place, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, motivated by Green Greek Representative Danny Maier, tied in house game points (100) and had 27 members sign the green pledge! Way to go SAE! Honorable mentions go to Theta Chi (59 points) led by Green Greek Representative Ben Weymiller, Zeta Tau Alpha led by Green Greek Representative Janine Denney-Mazzilli(31 points), and Kappa Kappa Gamma (14 members took Green Pledge) led by Green Greek Representative Mac Robinson!

Special Shoutout to Alpha Omicron Pi’s Green Greek Representative Lia Carstens who designed the BEAUTIFUL signage for the event, Alpha Phi Representative Madi Keeley for having Rockstar sponsor the event, Delta Zeta Representative Erica Li for having Suja sponsor the event, and Alpha Gamma Delta’s Representative Emmy Anzalone for helping out at the event!
