2019 Excellence in Environmental Engineering and Science (E3S) Competition

The E3S Awards Competition is the gold standard for identifying state-of-the-art projects in environmental engineering and science. Get the recognition and exposure your leading edge projects and your team deserve! The submission process is entirely electronic, allowing you to submit your completed entry directly online. Judging is also conducted electronically with an unlimited geographic representation of judges. Completed entries for the E3S Awards Competition must be uploaded by February 1, 2019. You may submit the reservation form at any time, but it is advised that you do so prior to the February 1st deadline to allow time to review instructions for, and test, your secured drop box.

2019 Environmental Communications (EComm) Awards

Communicating with the public at large and other constituents can be a complex and challenging issue. Communication and marketing plans must be designed to address the objectives and strategies of the campaign to reach a target audience. With this in mind, AAEES is proud to offer this area of competition and invites consulting firms and municipalities alike to enter. Completed entries for the EComm Awards Competition must be uploaded by March 1, 2019. You may submit the reservation form at any time, but it is advised that you do so early to ensure that you have sufficient time to review instructions for, and test, your secured drop box before the March 1st deadline.

For entry forms and guidelines, go to http://www.aaees.org/ecommcompetition/.

2019 Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook - Sign Up for Your Listing

The Academy invites you to have your organization sign up for a listing in the 2019 Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook. We are releasing the Guidebook in both electronic and print format to make this year's edition easier to use and easier to distribute to individuals and organizations looking to connect with environmental specialists. We are expanding the content that each listing receives - enabling web links in the e-version and providing more room to post information on your specialties in both versions. We expect to print and distribute the new publication more widely than we have in the past, with a special focus on outreach at the trade events and conferences we attend during the year. We are also planning an expanded role for the Guidebook in making federal, state, and local agencies aware of the capabilities of our members in helping deal with current environmental engineering needs.

Have your organization reserve its space by March 15, 2019. It's great exposure for a low cost. For details, email JSOlmo@aaees.org. To download the reservation form, click here.
