Do you know someone who is passionate about sustainability? Do they go above and beyond to recycle or teach others how to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle? Nominate them for a Residence Life Sustainability Award!
Responses will be reviewed by the Residence Life Sustainability Committee and winners will be announced at the 6th Annual Sustainability Dinner.
1) Green Tradition
This award is given to the student who exhibits the most enthusiasm for sustainability by volunteering for events, aiding with educational events for residents in the Residence Halls and have gone above and beyond to make sustainability an Aggie tradition.
2) Waste Reduction
Awarded to the student who has been a leader for recycling in the Residence Halls through educational outreach and encouraging their fellow students to recycle
3) Creative Innovator
This student developed creative and ground-breaking approaches to addressing sustainability issues like recycling, student engagement, and energy conservation in the residence halls.
4) Friend of Sustainability
Awarded to a Residence Life staff member who aids with sustainability. This individual went above and beyond to improve sustainability in the TAMU Residence Halls and who served as an example of sustainability to our residents. Staff members can apply, be nominated by students, or be nominated by the Sustainability Awards Committee.
5) Green Custodial
Students nominate individual custodians in their halls, or anywhere on campus, who go above and beyond for recycling. The individual with the most nominations is not necessarily guaranteed to win. In other words, custodians who service large halls like Hullabaloo do not have an advantage over the custodians from Appelt. Submissions will be judged by who can provide the most compelling examples of the nominee contributing to recycling. A custodian from each area can win this award.
