Energy Leadership

ENERGY LEADERSHIP AWARD REQUIREMENTS

The Energy Leadership Award is designed to recognize student groups and campus departments for being  active partners in reducing the University’s energy expenditures through education and positive impact behaviors.  It is awarded on an annually renewable basis.  Those earning this award will be allowed to use the Stewardship seal on their publications and websites to signify both their commitment and achievement.  In addition, the OSU Energy Management Program will publicly recognize the award winners in a variety of ways throughout the year to highlight their success.  Some opportunities/ideas that have been generated so far include (but are not limited to) banners in the lobby of their building, spotlighting them in articles through OSU Communication, special recognition at the annual SAC Picnic, photos and name recognition on A-frames at homecoming, banners at GIA during graduation and banners at BPS during football season.
