DEP Environmental Excellence Awards

Have you either worked with or seen the results of an outstanding individual, organization or business working toward bettering the environment? If so, you have the unique opportunity to be able to recognize those outstanding environmental stewards through the DEP Environmental Excellence Awards. Through this awards program, DEP is providing a platform to tell the stories of the environmental stewardship taking place in the Commonwealth. The awards include three Environmental Pacesetter Awards to recognize exemplary efforts to protect the environment, conserve resources and set an example of environmental stewardship. The Community Environmental Luminary Award highlights achievements in community-based environmental education and outreach. The Resource Caretaker Award focuses on efforts to conserve Kentucky’s resources. Award winners will be recognized at the Governor’s Conference on Energy and the Environment.

Please encourage participation in this award nomination process or nominate someone yourself.  Additional information and the nomination form can be found here.
