West Kootenay EcoSociety is soliciting nominations for environmental acheivement awards. The award categories reflect EcoSOciety’s program areas of Conservation, Climate Change, Sustainable Food Systems, and Environmental Education, and will be awarded at the annual Spring Into Spring fundraising gala on April 10, 2016. 

“We’re really excited to revive our awards program. There are so many people and organizations in the region doing amazing things, some of which fly under the radar,” said David Reid, Executive Director. 

Individuals or organizations nominated for an award must be operating within the West Kootenay region.  Members of EcoSociety’s staff and board of directors are not eligible for nomination.  Nominations will be evaluated based on innovation and leadership, impact and reach of the project, demonstration of dedication and longevity, and inspiration.  Nominations can be completed online at https://neighboursunited.org/awards-nominations by March 2. Successful nominees will be notified prior to the event.
