Dear Undergraduate and Graduate Students,
The UC Office of the President seeks applications for the Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Best Practice Awards Competition for 2012. Students can apply in a diversity of award categories including but not limited to Student Energy Efficiency Program, Student Sustainability Program, Water Efficiency, Waste Reduction, Sustainable Food, and Innovations. The goals of the program are to:
- Highlight the achievements that California campuses (and their students) have made through innovative and effective energy efficiency projects and sustainable operations;
- Showcase specific projects as models to be used by other campuses to achieve energy efficiency and sustainability goals; and
- Provide campus staff, faculty, and students with a valuable compendium of Best Practice projects that could be transferable to their campus.
This is a great chance for students to be recognized for their efforts to reduce their university/campus’ impact on the environment. Winning students will have the opportunity to give a presentation at the CA Higher Education Sustainability Conference where they will also be presented with their award. This recognition is valuable for resume building and relationships developed during the conference and through the presentation will be invaluable for students as they move forward with their academic and professional careers.
This year’s competition features a “Sustainability Innovations” category. Nominations in this category are encouraged for replicable best practices that are not eligible for consideration in other award categories. Special consideration will be given to projects in all categories that demonstrate exemplary collaboration between campuses and local communities around shared sustainability goals.
The deadline for nomination forms is March 7th, 2012. More details on the awards program – including detailed descriptions of award categories, nomination forms, and directions on how to submit – are available here. Attached is a letter from Vice President Lenz of the UC Office of the President announcing the Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Best Practice Awards Competition for 2012.
