A new campus award for environmental stewardship: The Husky Green Award

Nominations are being sought for a new UW honor, the Husky Green Award. Established by the Environmental Stewardship Advisory Committee, the award celebrates individuals and teams who have contributed to UW’s leadership and excellence in environmental stewardship, and provides recognition to those from the entire UW community who have dedicated their passion, energy and time to promote sustainability at the UW.


The Husky Green Award will recognize efforts by an individual or a group within the UW’s community of faculty, students and staff at the Seattle, Tacoma and Bothell campuses. Nominations will be judged based on the following criteria:



  • Leadership: Identification of a project or initiative and gathering of support to implement it
  • Initiative: Going above and beyond normal duties to perform the activity
  • Dedication: Working towards leveraging sustainability efforts on campus through awareness and outreach


Nominations must be submitted by April 5 and will be reviewed by a sub-set of the Environmental Stewardship Advisory Committee. Winners will be announced on Earth Day (April 22).
