Clean Energy and Empowerment Education (C3E) Award
Nicky Phear, the Climate Change Studies coordinator at the University of Montana, recently was named the 2016 recipient of the Clean Energy and Empowerment Education (C3E) Award from the U.S. Department of Energy.
The national award recognizes Phear’s leadership in education about clean energy and her mentorship of students in this field.
“It’s a great honor to receive this recognition,” Phear said. “I can’t think of a more worthy goal than empowering our youth to tackle our planet’s energy and climate challenges.”
