VOLOFebruary 2019 (Source: VoLo Foundation at Climate Correction) - The VISTA Award is VoLo's latest award recognition, specific for students who display exemplary leadership, along with Vision, Innovation, Sustainability, Technology, and Adaptation in climate solutions within the State of Florida. VoLo will gather proposals from students at either the Undergraduate or Graduate level who are enrolled full-time with a US-based University or College. VoLo will invite the finalist student individuals or teams to present their ideas at our annual Climate Correction conference in Orlando, FL. At Climate Correction, audience members will assist VoLo's Founders in determining the project that best drives positive change in climate solutions. The winning project’s individual or team will receive a $10,000 gift, made out to the University or College with whom they are affiliated to grow the project’s efforts. NOTE: this award recognition is only open to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at a Florida-based university or college. See details on how to register.

VoLo’s VISTA Award recognizes students determined to implement and achieve aggressive improvement in Florida’s climate goals. The award seeks to assist young leaders in sharing their voice and climate solutions throughout the community. Applicants of the VoLo VISTA Award program must complete our application questions and meet the following requirements.

  1. Applicants must be enrolled at a US-based University or College. No student may apply for the award during his/her final year of study unless current team members will be able to continue the project’s work at the institution for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year.
  2. The project must address a climate solution for the state of Florida.
  3. The project must be scalable. All applicants will need to provide a clear line-item budget and details about project growth. Applications can complete an optional Key Performance Indicator (KPI) model for their project to help further illustrate how the project will grow.
  4. The project must validate an achieved data result. I.e., X amount of GHG reduction is achieved with the implementation of this project at Y location for the period of Z years.
  5. All project proposals must be received by July 31, 2019. Finalists will be notified on their acceptance into Climate Correction no later than September 15, 2019.
