University of Colorado Denver


2002 award winners

  • Katy Human of the Daily Camera, Boulder , for regularly covering a wide range of environmental topics in a way that helps readers understand the relationship between how they live and the affect on the world in which they live. She was also the first to regularly report on the Department of Energy’s Solar Competition and began covering the University of Colorado’s entry long before it was declared the winner.
  • Steve Raabe of the Denver Post , for his business reporting with a focus on energy and renewable energy. “Recently, more of our coverage has been devoted to developments in renewable or sustainable energy. While some may see these developments as driven by an environmental consciousness, I am personally and professionally enthused to see these projects making inroads to their business sector as technological advancements result in better efficiencies and economies.”
  • Nick Carter, KUSA-TV, Channel 9, Denver , for devoting part of his morning drive-time weather report to energy efficiency advances in new home construction and then to a series of tips on energy and water conservation allowing hundreds of thousands of viewers to receive the good news that each one of us can do something to save energy and water.
  • Evergreen Land Community Coalition, Evergreen , for creating a grass roots strategy to fight the proposed commercial development of a prime piece of land and eventually having that land as part of a community-wide master plan including a 67-acre active use park instead of high-end condos, office buildings, and commercial zoning.
  • University of Colorado Solar Decathalon , Boulder for defeating 14 other colleges and universities and winning the Department of Energy’s challenge to design and build a 500 square foot house that would harness the sun to supply ALL energy for heating, cooling, hot water, lighting, appliances, even computers. More than 60 faculty members and 150 public and private partners contributed ideas, support and materials.
  • Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust and Lynne Sherrod, for tirelessly representing the interests of farmers, ranchers, conservationists and non-development community interests through the use of conservation easements thereby preserving thousands of acres of agricultural land, a traditional way of living and making a living, and by doing so, saving wildlife, precious habitat, riparian ecosystems and preserving open space. | Physical Address: 1380 Lawrence St., Ste. 500  Denver, CO  80204 | Mailing Address: University of Colorado Denver, SPA, Campus Box 142, P.O.
