Winners of previous awards can be accessed in the Sustainability Student Showcase on ScholarWorks, the University’s digital repository.

NOTE: From 2012-2020, the award required submission of a research paper written for a class. 

The 2021 Undergraduate Sustainability Award was a collaboration between the UMass Amherst Libraries and Lillian Kurina ’21, a Natural Resource Conservation major and part of the Waste and Recycling Fellowship through the Physical Plant. For her semester project, Lillian developed the concept of the 2021 Sustainability Award focusing on art to inspire UMass Amherst undergraduates of all backgrounds to reflect on their relationship to the environment and how they experience climate change.
