The U.S. Green Building Council New Jersey Chapter (USGBC-NJ) is seeking applicants for their 10th Anniversary Gala Awards. The nomination period is open until August 10th. (The Student Award deadline is not until Sept. 21.) USGBC-NJ recognizes and presents these awards to companies and individuals who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in green building and sustainability at the Chapter’s Annual Gala. The winning applicants will be honored at this year’s Gala & Awards Dinner on October 11, 2012 at the new Revel in Atlantic City.
There are five award categories: community; green team; green ground breaking; municipal/ public-private sector; and student. The Municipal or Public-Private sector award recognizes a municipality or public-private sector partnership that demonstrates leadership and innovation in green building practices on a community-wide basis.
The USGBC-NJ’s Annual Gala is the event of the year for green building and sustainability professionals in the tri-state area. Last year, keynote speaker Mayor Cory Booker wowed the crowd. Previous honorees include: Colgate Global Technology Center; PNC Bank; Wyndham Worldwide; NJ Economic Development Authority; Newark’s Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District; Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Stafford Park and Homeless Solutions; and Spiezle Architectural Group.
