2018 Sustainability Champions Awards on April 17
East Tennessee Room 11am - 1 pm

The Sustainability Champion Awards are designed to recognize individuals or groups at ETSU who go out of their way to develop a culture of sustainability. We want to celebrate their hard work and honor their achievements by awarding them at this awards ceremony. This year's award ceremony will be held on April 17 in the East Tennessee room in the D.P. Culp University Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Nominate an individual or group by writing a short description  (200 words or less) of why they should receive the award. Members of the Department of Sustainability vote on the nominees and select an award recipient for each category (staff, faculty, student, student organization and department)

Is there someone you know that's going above and beyond sustainability? Please nominate them for this award.

The selection criteria are as follows:

Lasting impact vs. single event or instance
We favor actions that will have a lasting impact on the campus community.

Sustainability-focused* vs. sustainability-related**
Actions that are sustainability-focused will be considered over actions that are sustainability-related. Multiple actions may be combined for this point, so long as together they show the nominee has approached sustainability from economic, social, and environmental perspectives.

*sustainability-focused actions include all three sustainability elements (justice, economics, and environment), showing others how different dimensions of sustainability relate to and support each other in theory and/or practice, addressing complex global issues.

**sustainability-related actions include one or two sustainability elements (justice, economics, and environment).

Innovation and Dedication
Actions taken by individuals or organizations to change the status quo and improve the sustainability climate at ETSU.   A proven commitment  to sustainability through persistence and dedication.

Send nominations to by Monday, April 2.
