The GLOBE Program has been awarded the prestigious American Geophysical Union (AGU) 2021 Excellence in Earth and Space Science Education Award. Dr. Tony Murphy, Director of the GLOBE Implementation Office, and Dr. Allison Leidner, NASA Program Manager for GLOBE, will accept the award at the AGU Honors Ceremony and Honors Banquet in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, on Wednesday, 15 December. 

The award is given annually in recognition of long-lasting, positive impacts in Earth and space science education. Award winners are those who have made long-lasting, positive impacts in the Earth and space sciences at any education level from kindergarten through postgraduate studies. More frequently given to individuals, the award is sometimes given to groups or organizations. This year’s award goes to The GLOBE Program and everyone at the GIO as well as throughout the GLOBE international community feels a sense of pride in the achievement!

“The GLOBE Program has made outstanding achievements and contributions by pushing the frontiers of our science forward," said AGU President Susan Lozier, on behalf of the AGU Earth and space science community. "GLOBE has also embodied AGU’s shared vision of a thriving, sustainable, and equitable future for all powered by discovery, innovation, and action. And you did this with integrity, respect, diversity, and collaboration while creating deep engagement in education and outreach."
