Shack-a-thon is an annual student-led fundraising event for the Wake County chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Student groups sign up, build a temporary “shack” for a week and raise money.
This year, the Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling awarded a Most Sustainable Shack Award to the student group that most incorporated sustainability into their shack. The College of Natural Resources won for its reused shack that will be set up as a tool shed at a nearby campus forest.
The close runner-up was the Hodge Podge Lodge, which was made of almost entirely salvaged material.
