AUBURN UNIVERSITY – The Auburn University Office of Sustainability is accepting nominations for the third annual Spirit of Sustainability Awards program which recognizes the accomplishments of students, faculty, staff and alumni who exemplify the Auburn Spirit by promoting sustainability on campus or in the community at large.
"Sustainability is a high priority for Auburn University and there are a lot of people affiliated with Auburn who are doing impressive things," said Mike Kensler, director of the Office of Sustainability. "We want to make sure they are recognized and their work is celebrated."
Nominations will be accepted through Feb. 11. Individuals or groups are eligible for the awards. Consideration will be given to awardees based upon their motivation and commitment to sustainability, the impact of their work and the degree to which they engage and involve others in their efforts.
A selection committee comprised of students, faculty, staff and an alumnus will review nominations, and those selected will be recognized at an awards ceremony to be held at 3 p.m. on Earth Day, April 22.
"The program was created in part to generate awareness of sustainability initiatives and to acknowledge those who are making significant contributions toward economic, social and environmental wellbeing," Kensler said. "The Spirit of Sustainability Awards program is also intended to inspire further innovations, initiatives and actions toward a flourishing future."
