Each year, the faculty from our partner universities and colleges nominate an exemplary student from their Green Industry program. These students have shown themselves as leaders with their fellow students, been involved in extracurricular projects/programs, and possess the attributes to become a future leader of the industry. MNLA presents the recipients with an award plaque and cash award.
