S.C. Environmental Awareness Award Call for Nominations

Oct 25, 2013 | News

The S.C. Environmental Awareness Award committee is seeking nominations for the 2013 award. The deadline for nominations is January 31, 2014.

The S.C. General Assembly established the award, now in its 21st year, during the 1992 legislative session to recognize outstanding contributions made toward the protection, conservation, and improvement of South Carolina’s natural resources.

Each year the public is invited to submit nominations that are then reviewed by an award committee, which considers excellence in innovation, leadership, and accomplishments that influence positive changes. Members of the award committee include representatives of the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium, S.C. Department of Natural Resources, S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control, and the S.C. Forestry Commission.
