Students can enter for the chance to win $140,000 of energy-generating SportsArt ECO-POWR™ cardio equipment for their campus recreation centers


SportsArt is inspiring the next generation of eco-leaders to create a more sustainable planet with its Campus Challenge sweepstakes that will provide one lucky, grand prize-winning campus recreation center with SportsArt ECO-POWR™ energy-generating cardio equipment valued at over $70,000. The nationwide sweepstakes, designed to bring awareness to sustainable living, urges college students to “accept the challenge” to live more sustainably in order to better our shared world.

Including three levels of prize packages with a combined value of over $140,000––the grand prize winner, second place and third place winners’ campus recreation centers will receive SportsArt’s innovative ECO-POWR™ equipment (such as treadmills, ellipticals, cycles, steppers and more) that converts human energy into usable electricity. These prize packages will transform any campus recreation center into a more sustainable fitness space that inspires and enables students to protect the planet with every workout. The sweepstakes will begin on January 1, 2024, and will be open to campuses nationwide. Entries will be accepted through March 15, 2024.

TikTok posts from students accepting the challenge to be more sustainable in their campus life will serve as entries to the SportsArt Campus Challenge sweepstakes where one student will win the ECO-POWR™ grand prize package for their campus rec center. Details on how to enter and requirements can be found online: gosportsart.com/CampusChallenge.

Combining user-friendly controls, reliable durability and unmatched sustainability—SportsArt’s ECO-POWR™ premium cardio equipment turns any campus recreation center into a sustainable fitness solution. In fact, the G690 Verde Treadmill is the first treadmill in the industry to harness human power and convert it into utility grade electricity and is capable of capturing up to 200 Watts/hour of energy—giving back to the grid as students work out.

“College students have real power to inspire the change they want to see in our shared world,” said Ruben Mejia, executive vice president, SportsArt Americas. “Harnessing that passion, creativity and urgency to create a more sustainable world is the reason we launched the Campus Challenge sweepstakes. With the ECO-POWR™ line of equipment, students can convert up to 74% of human energy produced into clean renewable energy. We walk the walk when it comes to sustainability—and the Campus Challenge sweepstakes invites students to walk alongside us.” Three finalists will be randomly selected from the entries. Winning order will be announced at the National Intramural and Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) 2024 in Phoenix, Arizona, on April 19 at the All-Conference Social.
