EPA Seeks Entries for Clean Air Awards
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is accepting entries through Sept. 25 for its 10th Annual Clean Air Excellence Awards Program. The purpose of this program is to recognize and honor both individuals and organizations that have taken innovative steps to help improve air quality.
Award-winning entries are programs, projects, or technologies that must—either directly or indirectly—reduce pollutant emissions, demonstrate innovation, offer sustainable outcomes, and provide a model for others to follow. EPA accepts entries in five award categories and two special award categories:
* Clean Air Technology
* Community Action
* Regulatory/Policy Innovations
* Transportation Efficiency Innovations
* The Thomas W. Zosel Outstanding Individual Achievement Award, which goes to an individual who has shown outstanding achievement, demonstrated leadership, and a lasting commitment to promoting clean air and helping to achieve better air quality.
* The Gregg Cooke Visionary Program Award, for an outstanding project or program that has achieved environmental excellence in more than one of the five general award categories.
EPA judges the entries using both general criteria and criteria specific to each category; the program is open to both public and private entities in the U.S.
The entry form is available online. For information, contact Pat Childers.
