EPA's Patrick H. Hurd Sustainability Award
The International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) is the world's largest international pre-college science competition. It is the premier global science competition for students in grades 9–12. The Regeneron® ISEF 2021 will welcome student finalists from around the world in a virtual format. EPA’s 2021 P. Hurd Sustainability Award winner and the recipient of honorable mention were announced at the Special Award Ceremony on May 20th , 2021 at Regeneron® ISEF.
Since 2009, EPA has participated as a Special Award Organization, and shared information about environmental protection with the ISEF participants and visitors. EPA recognizes one project with the EPA Patrick H. Hurd Sustainability Award. In 2011, the EPA Sustainability Award was renamed in honor of Patrick Hurd, who managed the effort behind EPA's first Sustainability Award.
EPA's award provides funding for the winning student and a chaperone to participate in and display the student's project at EPA's People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Student Design Competition for Sustainability. P3 is an annual event that brings together young environmental innovators and scientists to showcase their designs for a sustainable future.
EPA did not select a Patrick H.Hurd Sustainability Award winner in 2020 as no Special Awards were given at the 2020 Virtual Regeneron ISEF.
