In time for Earth Day, the Frederick County Sustainability Commission is accepting nominations for its 2016 Sustainability Awards. The awards are presented annually to one employee or office of Frederick County Government, one organization (municipality, non-profit, or private) and one member of the general public that lives or works in Frederick County.
Award recipients have made an outstanding contribution in helping Frederick County advance sustainability efforts, for example by implementing energy efficiency, encouraging renewable energy, improving air and water quality, building green or creating land use sustainability.
Nominations must be submitted by 5 p.m. on April 15, 2016. Applications are reviewed by the Frederick County Sustainability Commission, which will select awardees at its April 20th meeting in time for Earth Day.
“We are excited to see who comes forward nominations for the Sustainability Awards,” said Commission Chair Tom Anderson. “The community is doing outstanding work, and the awards are a great way to learn what people are doing and to recognize those who have made the most exemplary efforts.”
Awards are honorary and do not include monetary recognition.
