EPA solicits Environmental Award nominations

SAN FRANCISCO—The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Pacific Southwest region is encouraging citizens in California, Arizona, Nevada, Hawaii, and the Pacific islands to nominate a friend, peer, or organization for this year’s Environmental Awards program.
This year’s nomination period begins today and closes May 31, 2014.

The program seeks to recognize individuals and groups outside of EPA who made significant contributions to improve the environment. Anyone can be nominated, such as scientists, teachers, journalists, community activists, young people, organizations, business representatives, public officials, and others committed to protecting public health and preserving our natural surroundings.

EPA expects to notify winners this fall. Awardees will be recognized in events in their local areas or in conjunction with existing events, such as a conference or meeting.

Last year’s winners included a nonprofit organization that offers building supplies for reuse, wetlands scientists who champion vernal pool protection, a solar-powered dairy, a transportation professional who advanced electric school buses, a regional composting facility, and an educational foundation.
