Scholarship Description

Inspired by the young scientist and innovator Gitanjali Rao, CG Roxane LLC, the family-owned and operated maker of Crystal Geyser® Alpine Spring Water®, is kicking off an annual commitment to communities with the announcement of a $55,000 annual award program.

The California Youth Sustainability Award by CG Roxane, LLC aims to encourage and support young community leaders who are making a difference for sustainability in their communities by taking action for the planet. CG Roxane — as evidenced by their investment in environmental innovation and deep partnerships with organizations like American Forests and the California Coastal Commission — has a long history of supporting environmental groups, and would now like to extend that support to young individuals fighting for the planet’s future every day.

The annual award program will recognize young California Heroes, Champions, and Leaders in the world of sustainability, rewarding and encouraging them to continue making a sustainable impact upon their communities and the people around them. This annual Sustainability Awards Program will give $55,000 across six prizes to young individuals who are making a difference in their communities through sustainability efforts such as recycling, coastal clean up, planting trees, neighborhood litter pickup, or planting a community garden.

Open call for submissions will conclude October 30th and winners will be announced publicly on November 15th — America Recycles Day and the second anniversary of Crystal Geyser Roxane opening their San Bernardino rPET recycling center.

Applicant must be a California resident 1+ year, 21 years of age or younger and must be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen. Participants must be able to show tangible action they’ve taken in their community.
