The Mariana Islands Nature Alliance announced yesterday the return of its Green Gala, which was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s Green Gala—an event intended to celebrate conservation of the islands’ natural resources, and to recognize the efforts of members of the community, schools, and businesses to advance these goals in the Marianas—will be held on Sept. 10, 2021, according to a MINA news release yesterday. Future MINA press releases will announce the place where the Gala will take place.
Nominations are now being accepted for these awards for individuals and organizations in the following categories:
Environmental Champion Award: An individual who has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to the environment and conservation of our natural resources.
Environmental Heroes Award: A school, public or private, whose dedication to the environment is echoed through its students and their efforts to conserve our natural resources.
Green Business of the Year Award: A business that is committed to conservation and has incorporated the green business culture through its entire company.
Nominations must include: 1) Your name and contact information; 2) Your nominee and the category nominated for, and 3) a brief narrative describing your nominee’s efforts at environmental conservation. Submit your nominations on or before June 30, 2021 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember to save Sept. 10 on your calendars. MINA said that all COVID-19 preventative measures as recommended by the COVID-19 Task Force and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be observed.
Tickets have always sold out for past Green Galas, so be on the lookout for updates about one of Saipan’s premiere events to secure your tickets early.
