Henry O. Hooper Sustainability Cash Prize


The Henry O. Hooper Sustainability Cash Prize recognizes Northern Arizona University undergraduate and graduate students who have made an extraordinary effort to enhance the culture of sustainability on the NAU campus and surrounding community.

For this purpose, sustainability means increasing the heath of our community and our planet through an understanding of, and actions to enhance, the stability, resilience, and diversity of our intertwined natural, social, economic, and cultural systems. A sustainability award nominee should recognize these links and undertake significant actions resulting in positive impacts to the sustainability our local community. These actions could have an impact over a short period of time or occur over an extended period.


This award will be given to a currently enrolled graduate/undergraduate degree-seeking student who has demonstrated initiative, productivity, and a dedication to NAU’s commitment to sustainability through education, collaboration, and/or research on sustainability or the environment.
