GreenProject UNI Sponsors 2009 Wind Generation Festival
The 2009 Wind Generation Festival, put on by GreenProject UNI, will be held on Friday, Sept. 18. The event will take place from 4 to 9 p.m. at Lawther Field on the University of Northern Iowa campus (rain location in Lang Hall Auditorium).
The purpose of the Wind Generation Festival is to spread the excitement of the green movement at UNI. During the festival participants can play games, including miniature golf made from recycled material, win prizes, eat pizza and listen to speakers and live music. Organizations from campus and the community also will have "green" information available.
"We want students to hear about what is happening in their campus community, to spark some interest, and inspire students to get involved," says GreenProject UNI President Blake Argotsinger. "We want students to be the change, to know that their voices will be heard when it comes to bettering our campus."
