We appreciate these are unprecedented times and we have carefully considered the options for this year’s Green Gown Awards ahead of launching our call for applications.
Upon reflection, we believe that institutions should still have the chance to be recognised for their excellent efforts and we feel that applying for an Award could be a positive activity to help you come together with your virtual teams. It also offers a glimmer of hope, in these ever-changing days, with an opportunity for a much welcomed celebration with your peers.
With this in mind, we are pleased to announce that applications for the 2020 Green Gown Awards are now extended until 9th September 2020. With many colleagues being furloughed, we have opted to extend the Green Gown Awards application process with later deadlines and a March 2021 Awards Ceremony. We hope that as many universities and colleges as possible will be encouraged to apply and have the necessary time to do so.
