Nominate an Individual or Group for a Green Ribbon Award

Nominations will be open starting in January for 2018. Deadline for nominations will be at the end of January 2018

Nominees’ actions should have made a direct and positive contribution to the environment, the conservation of natural resources or the promotion of biodiversity on the St. George campus. Alternatively, their contribution may have increased awareness of the need for environmentally sustainable behaviour; encouraged and assisted members of the university community to adopt more environmentally sustainable behaviour; or helped establish a campus culture allowing this to happen.

Nominees may include students, faculty, staff or external people or organizations. Groups or individuals can be nominated.  Please note that in order to recognize a diversity of initiatives and accomplishments at the St. George community, winners of Green Ribbon Awards in 2015 and 2016 will not be considered for a 2017 Green Ribbon Award. Please view our 2016 and 2015 winners to confirm.
