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 2019 Intel® ISEF brought together 1,842 high school students from 80 countries, regions, and territories who presented their independent research in competition for approximately $5 million in awards and scholarships.
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.
Unfortunately, Regeneron ISEF 2020 has been cancelled. We look forward to participating in Regeneron ISEF 2021. The 2020 P3 competition was scheduled to be part of the 2020 USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo, which is postponed until further notice.
