EPA's Apps for the Environment

Would a mobile application help your school or district during a school IAQ walkthrough? Do you have ideas for creating environmental and/or health applications to help school communities nationwide?

Participate in EPA’s Apps for the Environment
(, and use EPA’s health and environmental data to develop a new app geared towards creating healthy indoor environments in schools. EPA supplies the data and you deliver the vision and solutions – and keep the rights. Over 90 ideas have been submitted so far! (

EPA experts will select a winner and runner up in each of two categories: Best Developer App and Best Student App. In addition, the public will vote for a “People’s Choice” winner. Apps will be judged based on their usefulness, innovation and usability. Winners will receive recognition on EPA’s website and will be honored at a recognition event in Washington, D.C., where they will present their apps to senior EPA officials and invited guests.
