NEW — 4 p.m. Feb. 5, 2013
Nominate eco-conscious students, teachers, staffers, volunteers and programs — or even entire schools — for the King County Earth Heroes at Schools awards program.
The awards program 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. Issaquah School District campuses typically perform well in the awards.
The program encourages self-nominations. Or, colleagues, classmates and the public can nominate potential Earth Heroes. Find nomination forms and the list of 2012 winners at http://1.usa.gov/y5Hpzf. Call 206-296-4477 to learn more.
The nomination deadline is Feb. 23. The county plans to announce honorees in April.
