CLEAR Faculty/Staff Honored at 2013 Awards & Honors Event

Three CLEAR faculty/staff were recently honored by UConn’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. For the second year in a row CLEAR team members (a team of two this year) have won the CES Grant for Innovative Programming in Extension Award. David Dickson and Michael Dietz won for their creation of the Rain Garden App, the first University app for the general public. Emily Wilson won the award in 2012 for her use of geospatial data and technology through maps, aerial and satellite imagery and other geographically-referenced information.

Kara Bonsack, CLEAR’s graphic designer and primary web developer, won the 2013 Arland Mead Communications Award for her design of a whole raft of CLEAR publications, as well as her design and management of the CLEAR website and its component pieces (which, at last count, totalled 2.3 million pages, or thereabouts).

Congratulations to all!
