Nominate an Environmental Hero for a 2008 EPA Award

Take a moment to recognize your favorite environmental achievers and heroes. We need great role models!

Find green business solutions
Nominate people you know for some recognition of their outstanding environmental work. In these difficult times, a pat on the back can mean a lot! And doesn't cost you anything but a bit of your time.

Spread the word about great environmental achievement!

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is encouraging people in California, Arizona, Nevada, Hawaii, and the Pacific Islands to nominate a friend, peer or organization for this year's U.S. EPA Environmental Awards program.

The deadline to submit nominations is February 8. The program recognizes individuals and groups outside of the U.S. EPA who made significant contributions to improve the environment in the year 2008. 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.

Entries will be judged on the following criteria:

  • promotion of innovative ideas, techniques, and/or technologies
  • ability to address an environmental problem or need
  • accomplishment of stated goals
  • ability of the program/activity to be replicated or widely shared
  • collaboration with others
  • clarity and effectiveness of the presentation
  • long term benefits for the environment

The deadline to submit nominations online is February 8. An EPA panel will review all of the applications and select this year's winners, who will be notified by mid-March. Winners will then be recognized at a ceremony to be held in San Francisco mid-April.

Submit Environmental Award Nominee online

For more information and to submit a nomination online, visit: http://www.epa.gov/region09/awards. For questions regarding the program, please call the Environmental Information Center toll-free at (866) EPA-WEST or Wendy Chavez at (415) 947-4248.
