Northeast PA Environmental Partnership Award Nominations Now Being Accepted

Nominations are now being accepted for the Northeastern Pennsylvania Environmental Partnership Award and Thomas P. Shelburne Award, two prestigious environmental achievements. Nominations are due June 1.
            Winners of the awards will be honored at the Northeast Environmental Partners’ “21st Annual Evening for Pennsylvania’s Environment” on October 27, at the Woodlands Inn & Resort, Wilkes-Barre.
            For the 21st year, the Northeastern Pennsylvania Environmental Partnership Award will recognize achievements of individuals or organizations who, through partnerships, achieve excellence in environmental protection or conservation.
            The recipient of the Thomas P. Shelburne Environmental Leadership Award was established by NEPA Environmental Partners to recognize an individual for long-term commitment to environmental quality through inspirational leadership, dedication and commitment to partnering.
            "This event gives us the perfect opportunity to recognize the efforts of individuals and organizations making positive impacts to the environment and the people of Northeastern Pennsylvania," said Meg Welker, supervisor of public programs at PPL Corporation and dinner planning committee chairperson. “We just need everyone’s help in identifying those unsung heroes.”
            The Northeast Environmental Partners include the Northeast Pennsylvania Alliance, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Department of Environmental Protection, Pennsylvania Environmental Council’s Northeast Office, PPL Corporation, Procter & Gamble Paper Products Co. and Wilkes University.
            Awards are open to any group, individual, company, program, or organization whose work has had a positive impact on the environment in Northeastern Pennsylvania’s following counties: Bradford, Carbon, Columbia, Lackawanna, Lehigh, Luzerne, Monroe, Montour, Northampton, Northumberland, Pike, Schuylkill, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming.
            During the past 20 years, honors have been bestowed on over 150 individuals and groups involved in agriculture, forestry, business, industry, education, science, environmental awareness, community service, and government.
            Nominations may be made by a person or persons involved in the activity, or by a third party.
Nomination materials will be added to the PA Environmental Council’s website.
