If you read this blog, you're probably familiar with Jason Townsell's blog posts. Jason has written about construction safety, accident investigation, chemical safety, hazard control and more. He provides his expertise not only as a safety professional, but as the 2010 Future Leader in EHS scholarship recipient. Now, college students around the country have the chance to apply to become the next Future Leader.
The Future Leaders in EHS program, launched by PureSafety and EHS Today in 2010, was created to support and encourage EHS students as they respond to the challenges of the 21st century workplace and lead the way in keeping tomorrow's workers safe, healthy and on the job. The Future Leader in EHS winner receives a $5,000 scholarship, access to PureSafety's safety and health information solutions and the opportunity to serve on the EHS Today editorial advisory board for 2 years. The winner also will be featured in a forthcoming issue of EHS Today.
To qualify as a Future Leader in EHS, applicants must be enrolled as a junior, senior or graduate student in an EHS-related program at an accredited U.S. college or university; must be an American citizen; and must have a minimum GPA 0f 3.0 overall, with at least a 3.25 in EHS-related courses. Interested students must submit a completed application and provide three recommendations and three documented examples of outreach within their local or EHS communities.
The deadline for all Future Leaders applications is September 30. Visit the Future Leaders in EHS page for more information and to download the application.
If you'd like to follow in Jason's footsteps and become the next Future Leader in EHS, please apply by the end of September. We look forward to receiving your application, and may the best leader win.
