The P3 Award ceremony is held each year at the conclusion of the National Sustainable Design Expo. Periodically, several other organizations also announce awards to recognize the P3 teams.  Admission to the awards ceremony is by invitation only (media is invited).

This year, the P3 Award ceremony will be held at the National Academy of Sciences building in Washington, DC. At the awards ceremony, EPA will announce the teams that have won the EPA's P3 Award and are eligible for up to $75,000 in funding to take their designs to the marketplace. EPA also announces those teams that have won Honorable Mentions. In addition, the winners of additional awards sponsored by partners of the P3 Award program will be announced.

In previous years, EPA Administrators and Assistant Administrators for Research and Development at EPA have made presentations at the awards ceremony. Other leaders in science and technology for sustainability have also presented including: William Wulf, president of the National Academy of Engineering; Chad Holliday, CEO of Dupont; and Sanjay Correa of GE's Ecomagination program. Representatives from Capitol Hill have also attended and spoken at the award ceremony.

P3 Award

The P3 Award is given to the highest-rated student designs based on recommendations from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) judging panel and final decisions by EPA. The award includes a recycled glass sculpture and eligibility for additional funding of up to $75,000. Winning the P3 Award and receiving additional funding constitutes Phase II of the P3 program. Phase II is designed to provide additional support to the best sustainability projects, giving students an opportunity to further develop their designs, implement them in the field, and move them to the marketplace with the ultimate goal of benefiting people, promoting prosperity, and protecting the planet.
