If you think your alma mater has a great environmental studies program, we want to hear from you!
In order to participate, department heads must share their program’s marketing materials and fill out a submission form (deadline closed for 2012) for background/information on their school’s environmental programs by February 20, 2012. If selected by our panel of industry experts, your university could make our “Sustainable 16” list.
After being selected for the “Sustainable 16”, students and faculty will have until March 9, 2012 to submit short video testimonials, and/or a short 300-word essay, explaining why their school’s program deserves to be crowned the top in the nation.
The 2012 National Champion, announced April 2, 2012 will be awarded:
- A $5,000 cash donation to the university’s environmental & sustainability department.
- An all-expense paid trip to San Diego, CA for the department chair, where he or she will attend the Enviance User Conference April 16-18, 2012 and participate in a panel titled, “What Tomorrow’s Environmental Leaders Need to Know.”
In addition, the top two students who submitted the most compelling video or essay during the competition will win netbooks. There are also multiple opportunities for schools to be featured in publications throughout the tournament.
Judges for this year’s tournament include Velislava Ivanova , global sustainability director at CH2M HILL, Nick Johnson, managing consultant at Trinity Consultants, Don Cuffel, manager of environmental engineering at Valero/California, and our very own CEO, Larry Goldenhersh.
