Nominees sought for environmental awards
The Department of Environment and Conservation is inviting Tennesseans to submit nominations for the Governor’s 2013 Environmental Stewardship Awards. The awards recognize Tennesseans who go above and beyond to protect the state’s diverse environment.
The Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Awards cover 10 categories: building green, clean air, energy and renewable resources, environmental education and outreach (business category), environmental education and outreach (school category), land use, materials management, natural heritage, sustainable performance, and lifetime achievement. Any individual, business, organization, educational institution or agency is eligible, provided they are located in Tennessee and projects were completed during the 2012 calendar year. All nominees must have a minimum of three consecutive years in overall environmental compliance with the Department of Environment and Conservation. Self-nominations are encouraged.
