In recognition of her winning entry, Hall received an engraved, "green" commemorative award, made from recycled glass. The award was presented by Havre Field Office Manager Stanley Jaynes. All Field Offices in Abby's HiLine District will be outfitted with power strips this year in recognition of her foresight in greening BLM. In addition, the BLM plans to install smart power strips throughout the bureau over the next five years

The Think Green! award asked BLMers to contribute their best ideas about how the agency can "go green" and improve its overall energy and environmental performance. About 70 entries were received.

Abby's winning idea champions installing "Smart" power strips bureau-wide. These power strips are located at individual work stations to make saving energy easy and automatic through the use of motion sensors. If there is no activity for a certain amount of time, the power strip turns off selected outlets, leaving on only those outlets that are required to stay on.
