Every year, the EAC awards the Stewsie Sustainability Award to one Carleton student and one Carleton faculty or staff member who has made a notable impact on academic and/or operational sustainability efforts at Carleton. The awards are given to Carleton campus citizens whose character most reflects the determination, conviction, and innovation of the lifelong service of Dresdon Blake Stewart, better known as “Stewsie.”  As superintendent of grounds, Stewsie served the College for more than 50 years. Through his problem-solving, will-power, and enthusiasm, Stewsie ensured the health and vitality of our natural environment.

The Environmental Advisory Committee (EAC) seeks nominations for the award each spring. Winners receive a $150.00 cash prize and a certificate, as well as campus notification of their award.
