Sustainability Excellence Awards Criteria and Selection Process
The Sustainability Excellence Awards (SEA) seek to promote sustainable practices by sharing the work of other museums. The entries selected are not “better,” but have the most to share with the greater museum community and have the greatest impacts in terms of resource use reductions, education, and behavior change.
Winners will be selected by a panel of experts, according to the following criteria:
|1. Has the project/program set ambitious but realistic goals in relation to available resources?||20%|
|2. Have the project/program’s goals and outcomes been clearly documented?||20%|
|3. Will the project/program serve as a good example for other institutions?||20%|
|4. Has the project/program had a significant impact on environmental sustainability?||40%|
Winners will be notified the last week of March. Winning teams will be asked to prepare and present images and slides of their submission during the 2021 Annual Meeting, with the format depending on the nature of the conference (virtual or in-person).
