Clean air is a family affair. You are invited to watch Cache Valley locals feud it out as they try to guess what the survey says, and the survey will depend on your votes. Enjoy a curry dinner with us and some of your favorite people on January 16. (We're depending on you for the last one.) Help us raise money for cleaner air at the Cache Clean Air Consortium's 6th annual event.


This year we hosted a public talk with experts, and for the first time, we provided information on summer ozone at local athletic events. This winter we're promoting an idle free city with outreach and one-on-one outreach. Generous contributions from local businesses and donors make these activities possible. Our annual fundraiser pays for programming the year ahead. We ask for your support through a ticket, table, or donation.

USU Marketing Professor

Ed Stafford

Edwin Stafford is the co-founder of the annual Utah High School Clean Air Poster Contest (with Roslynn Brain McCann of USU Extension Sustainability).  For 2020, the contest is engaging over 800 teens from southern Idaho to Moab, and state winners will be announced February 8 at the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art.  Winning posters will then be used for education outreach across the state.  His research with McCann examines how teens participating in the poster contest educate and influence their parents on clean air actions in what they call the “inconvenient youth” effect.  Ed’s broader research focuses on green marketing, the entrepreneurship and diffusion of renewable energy and clean technology, and the framing of green messages to appeal to mainstream consumers.
