On 24 April 2013, COTE announced its 2012-2013 COTE award recipients.
The awards fall into three main categories:
COTE Exemplar Awards recognize individuals or groups with significant accomplishments promoting the sustainable use of natural resources or the protection of ecological systems.
Individuals who have a record of continual significant achievements are further recognized by the awarding of a "COTE Exemplar Lifetime Achievement Award".
COTE Green Initiative Awards recognize everyday activities, decisions or contributions that help to move Ball State University toward sustainability. Their purpose is to reward discrete contributions rather than a history of multiple accomplishments.
COTE Service Awards recognize past individual service on or to the BSU Council on the Environment.
