Last year, sustainability joined community and diversity as the newest Idea Lab challenge. The winning idea will expand move-out recycling and reuse opportunities for Homewood students. The 80 proposed ideas in response to three challenges recorded nearly 9,000 votes from the JHU community.

This year, we invite you to submit your most innovative ideas for increasing visibility and inspiring action through a creative or experiential program. If you have a creative idea for engaging the campus community and inspiring action, you could be the next winner of the Acorn Grant!
