Application Period for Annual Sustainability Awards Now Open
FREDERICK, Md. –The Frederick County Sustainability Commission is now accepting nominations for its annual Sustainability Awards program, which recognizes individuals and organizations who have demonstrated a commitment to environmental stewardship. The application period is open through June 30, 2023.
The volunteer members of the Sustainability Commission provide a community-based perspective to Frederick County Government on sustainability-related issues. The Commission works to ensure that the natural environment’s importance and relevance are recognized so that Frederick County will continue to prosper as a healthy, abundant, affordable, and inspiring place to live and work. To that end, their Sustainability Awards recognize the efforts of those who have demonstrated leadership and a commitment to environmentally-sound practices.
Applicants include individuals, students, businesses, and non-profit organizations that have significantly contributed to Frederick County's sustainability initiatives. Examples of outstanding efforts include but are not limited to, implementing energy efficiency programs, encouraging the use of renewable energy, improving air and water quality, conserving resources and recycling, enhancing natural habitats, and other actions that help the community "go green." The Commission reviews all applications; winners will be announced later this year and acknowledged in a special event.
