  2. Showcase specific projects as models to be used by other campuses to achieve energy efficiency and sustainability goals; and
  3. Provide campus staff with a compendium of Best Practice projects that could be transferable to their campus. 
Award Nominations are due March 7. For more information about the different nominating categories and to fill out a nomination form, check out their website.
