Sophomore Aleksandra Gawor used dry humor and driving music to deliver a common sense message about recycling in her winning entry in the SMU Green Minute Video competition. Knowing that often the best ideas start at home, SMU’s Campus Sustainability Committee invited students to create a one-minute video promoting sustainability on the Hilltop. The winner was announced on national Campus Sustainability Day Oct. 21. Other winners included Norman Belza, second; Matthew Rispoli, third; and Ava Damri, honorable mention.

“The Campus Sustainability Committee is less than a year old, and we were looking for a way to let students know that we want their involvement,” says Michael Paul, committee chair and executive director of facilities management and sustainability.
