Fashion Merchandising majors Meghan Roberts, Justin Baluyot, and Elle Bialozynski won third place/Honorable Mention in the Educator's for Socially Responsible Apparel Practices Business Plan poster competition for their project, Sol.

The students wrote a business plan in Dr. Lentz-Schiller's Merchandise Sourcing and Logistics course for a socially and environmentally responsible shoe line, Sol, focusing on using recycled materials, domestic production, and full product lifecycle sustainability, all based on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. This award was presented at the closing luncheon of the International Textile and Apparel Association's Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, NV. More than 50 submissions were then narrowed to 10 for presentation at the conference.
