The 2019 Phillip B. Lindy Award for Excellence in K-16 Partnerships - Education for Sustainability Partnerships
The Phillip B. Lindy Award aims to recognize a collaborative partnership between at least one K-12 school and one university. This award will be given to the entire partnership, not an individual. Phil Lindy valued collaboration and communication among diverse stakeholders in order to maximize impact.

**This year the Lindy Award will be given to partnerships that address this year's theme of the K-16 June Institute - Education for Sustainability. **

Through establishing the K-16 Partnerships Network at PHENND, he hoped to bring that philosophy to the world of university-school partnerships. The Lindy Award seeks to honor partnerships that focus on meeting articulated school and community needs and that have goals for long-term commitment. At the 2018 K-16 Partnerships Network June Institute, an award of $1,000 will be given to the selected K-16 Partnership to enhance the mission and vision of this partnership (e.g., partner meetings, collaborative technologies, trainings, celebrations, outreach).
