SustainRT administers awards to recognize work being done in libraries to meet the triple bottom line of sustainability and to create more resilient and diverse communities. The awards will promote the sustainability goals of SustainRT and ALA library community by encouraging inclusive and sustainable practices that are environmentally-friendly, socially equitable, and economically feasible.
The SustainRT Citation for Wellness in the Workplace acknowledges staff as the library’s most important resource. Each year a library will be recognized for their meaningful investment in the people that make the library a transformative force in the communities that we serve.
The SustainRT New Voices in Sustainability Conference Stipend recognizes the importance of social equity to SustainRT and ALA. The stipend is awarded each year to support new and diverse members participating in the professional development and networking opportunities at the ALA Annual Conference.
