Hoosier Environmental Council is asking for nominations for our 2011 annual awards recognizing individuals, organizations and businesses for their commitment to improving the environment in Indiana. Awardees will be recognized at our 4th Annual Greening the Statehouse Policy Forum on December 10.
We are seeking nominees throughout the state in the following categories:
Organization of the Year: This designation is intended for a nonprofit group that helps raise awareness of environmental issues in their community.
Green Business of the Year: Whether a business makes green products, offers green services or implements green policies, sustainability is an important and necessary part of business.
Advocate of the Year: Do you know an environmental visionary who is active in green initiatives? We’d like to hear about them!
Frontline Volunteer of the Year: Is there an individual in your community who takes a hands-on approach to environmentalism? Tell us their story!
Elected Official of the Year: HEC looks for traits like courage, foresight and outspokenness on environmental issues – a true champion for Indiana’s land, water and air.
Trade Association of the Year: A group that identifies an environmental issue and pushes to make strides toward a better future for our state – that’s what we’re looking for.
The Robert Klawitter Lifetime Achievement Award: Robert Klawitter of Dubois, Indiana was a past HEC board member and tireless advocate for forests and open spaces. He was killed by a drunk driver in 1996 and this award was created in 1997 to honor his memory.
