The Environmental Advisory Commission is seeking nominations for the 2019 Tolbert Environmental Achievement Awards. The award program recognizes students, community groups, and individuals who conduct or participate in activities that benefit the town’s environment.
Activities that benefit the town’s environment include: innovative use of recycled materials (including composting, collection programs for materials that are recyclable or reusable); pollution prevention; waste reduction; protection of the natural environment; habitat improvement; beautification of the environment; environmental education; and monitoring the condition of Leesburg’s environment (streams, habitat, etc.).
To make a nomination, go toleesburgva.gov/eacand click the link to fill out the nomination form. The form requests a brief narrative describing the person or group being nominated; why they deserve to be recognized; and contact information for the person making the nomination. Be specific about their efforts and achievements and include quantifiable measures of success, if possible. Photos and other supplemental information may also be submitted.
Nominations must be submitted by the close of business on Friday, Jan. 3. The awards will be presented at a future Town Council meeting.
