Sustainability Award at Student Conference

UC Student ConferenceThe Unity College Student Conference was, of course, a great success.  At a school of our size (about 560 students), having more than 100 student presentations is no small feat.  Projects ranged from needle point artwork to academic posters on beech bark disease.  A number of awards were given (see the full results here), several of them carrying cash prizes.

As a staff member in the school’s Center for Sustainability and Global Change, I had the pleasure of working with Center faculty as a judge for the Sustainability Award.  The Sustainability Award was presented to Adam Douin, Jill Easterday, and Erik Larson for their poster entitled: Metal Concentrations in Sebasticook River Watershed Sediments, Central Maine.  Their project was an extension of the work they did with Lois Ongley’s Environmental Analysis class, which was highlighted in a Morning Sentinel article December 16th.
