Contest to bring in sustainability awareness

Since its introduction as “Green UH Day” in 2008, UH’s Sustainability Fest, which was officially renamed in 2012, has engaged students in informative and fun activities to raise awareness about environmental sustainability.

This year’s Sustainability Fest will take place on Tuesday at Lynn Eusan Park.


“These organizations will engage attendees through interactive activities featuring electric vehicle test drives, upcycled crafting and sustainability trivia.”

One such event is the Creative Expressions Contest. The contest sources submissions from students including short stories, songs and sculptures, on topics ranging from climate change to consumerism to social equity.

The first place winner will be awarded $100 gift card, a $50 card going to second place and a $25 card for the third place entrant.

The contest will showcase the winning entries, and will serve to further the exchange of ideas and information on sustainability in a way that engages students and provides a creative outlet.

“We want attendees to leave with a more holistic understanding of sustainability and what living sustainably means to them,” Blanton said.

Outreach Projects Coordinator for the Office of Sustainability, Nicole Blanton, explained that the event was a collaboration, and provided a few of the events that will take place during the upcoming Sustainability Fest.

“The event will feature over 40 exhibitors who all play a role in sustainability on campus or in the greater Houston area,” Blanton said.

“Sustainability is the result of being more mindful about personal actions and how we can work together to truly make a positive difference in the world around us.”
