Nominations Sought for Campus Environmental Awards

The Georgia Tech Earth Day Committee is now accepting submissions for its annual Leadership and Sustainable Initiatives awards.

Nominations are sought for individuals or groups who are making a positive environmental impact both on campus and beyond, either through a new initiative or a body of work. The deadline for nominations is Sunday, March 13.

Nominees must be students, faculty, staff, alumni, or retirees of Georgia Tech and should demonstrate a positive environmental impact, a commitment to restoring and enhancing the environment, and an ongoing commitment to environmental leadership. Self-nominations are welcome. Individuals or groups are eligible. 

Last year’s recipients were Hyacinth Ide, associate director for Landscape Services; Grace Brosofsky, an undergraduate environmental engineering major; and Campus Kitchens at Georgia Tech. 

Winners of this year’s awards will be honored at Tech’s annual Earth Day Celebration on Friday, April 22.
