EPA Seeks Nominations for Prestigious Annual Environmental Quality Awards

Each year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency honors individuals, businesses and organizations that have contributed significantly to improving the environment and protecting public health in New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and eight federally recognized Indian Nations. The period for the awards is 2013. EPA is now seeking nominations for this annual award. Winners will be honored at an awards ceremony in April 2014. Each winner will be recognized for his or her environmental achievement at a ceremony during Earth Week. The Agency is accepting nominations for its Environmental Quality Awards until February 18, 2014.

“What better way to mark the annual celebration of Earth Day than by honoring those organizations, businesses and individuals whose work in communities has improved public health and preserved

and restored the environment,” said EPA Regional Administrator Judith A. Enck. “The outstanding

efforts of EPA Environmental Quality Award recipients are fostering an environmental ethic in

corporate board rooms, city halls and neighborhoods across the country.”

The awards recognize achievement in six categories:

  • Individuals
  •  Business and Industry
  •  Non-Profit Organization, Environmental or Community Group
  •  Environmental Education
  •  Federal, State, Local or Tribal Government or Agency
  •  Press and Media

For award criteria, prior winners and nomination instructions, visit EPA’s Environmental Quality Award webpage at http://www.epa.gov/region2/eqa.
