The selection committee will reward the institution with the most innovative outreach efforts to engage its campus and broader community in climate and sustainability solutions. The award will focus on examples of institutions that are prioritizing climate change and sustainability, have implemented trend setting initiatives to take the issue to the next level, and are measurably influencing and mobilizing the community. Additionally, three runner-ups will be recognized and promoted for their important climate and sustainability work on campus. 

The deadline for proposals is now passed. Winners will be selected by October 24th, 2016 and notified shortly thereafter.
