RE: September 6th Deadline for the Governor’s Environmental Excellence Awards
The NJ Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has asked us to remind you that the application for the 2013 Governor’s Environmental Excellence Awards must be received by DEP staff by Friday, September 6th at 5:00 p.m.
The League is proud of our ongoing partnership with DEP on the Governor's Environmental Excellence Awards Program. It is New Jersey’s premier awards program for recognizing outstanding environmental performance, programs and projects throughout the state. These awards recognize individuals, businesses, educators, institutions, communities, organizations, youth and others who have made significant contributions to environmental protection in New Jersey.
To date, 126 entities have been recognized since the awards program was established in 2000. Nominations can be submitted for the following categories: Clean Air, Healthy Ecosystems, Water Resources, Land Conservation, Healthy and Sustainable Communities and Businesses, Innovative Technology, Environmental Education and the new “Environmentalist of the Year” category.
The application and other awards information can be found at www.nj.gov/dep/eeawards.
