The Katerva Awards — the equivalent to the Nobel prize in sustainable ideas has an opportunity for students!
This year’s sustainable ideas have been submitted for judging in ten categories including, Food Security, Behavioral Change, Economy, Protected Areas, Gender Equality, Materials & Resources, Human Development, Energy & Power, Transportation, and Urban Design.
Where do you come in? The eval process!
The evaluation process includes joining a small team of scholars who will review and edit where necessary the executive summary information that nominees submit to the Katerva Awards. Your job will be to summarize the essence of a nominee’s idea / technology in a concise format that will be shared with both the public on the Katerva website and with the expert panels as they are reviewing each nominee’s viability.
Your involvement would require you to review and edit a maximum of ten nominees over an eight-week period beginning on July 15, 2012. Each submission will take you approximately forty-five minutes to review and edit, which means that the total time investment on your part would be approximately 7.5 hours.
It’s not paid but it is a unique opportunity to be a part of the awards process and an excellent addition to any resumé. Not to mention, a good way to get back on track with your writing for the fall semester.
