Nominate ‘green’ activities for King County honor
January 31, 2012
Nominate eco-conscious students, teachers, staffers, volunteers and programs — or even entire schools — for the King County Earth Heroes at Schools awards program.
The award aims to honor people and entities for contributions to environmental protection and student environmental education. Honorees in past years included programs related to recycling, restoring habitat, composting lunchroom waste and growing pesticide-free gardens.
The program encourages self-nominations, but colleagues, classmates and the general public can also nominate Earth Heroes. Find nomination forms and the list of 2011 winners at the Solid Waste Division website, http://your.kingcounty.gov/solidwaste/index.asp. Or call 206-296-4477 to learn more.
Nominations must be submitted by Feb. 24. The county plans to announce honorees in April.
