Call for 2013 Eco-hero Award Nominations
The celebration for the 2012/13 Cool Davis Eco Hero Awards is set for April 21. Each year Cool Davis selects three individuals from our community to highlight with a special award. The criteria are listed below.
If you would like to nominate an individual, please submit the name and a paragraph why the person is deserving of recognition to Lynne Nittler at email@example.com by Monday, March 18 at noon. Please also include who you are and if you represent an organization or business.
The nominating committee will meet the evening or March 18 to begin the selection process. Thank you.
Criteria to identify individuals for Cool Davis Eco-Hero Awards:
• Our aim is to recognize several visionary Davis residents who model how to incorporate sustainable practices into their civic and everyday lives. We want to honor some of the often hidden heroes among us who are forging and implementing new ways to live lightly with less impact on the environment.
• We are looking for activists who, out of personal conviction, and often out of the limelight as well, are just doing “the right thing” for themselves, our community and our planet. We hope the attention the award brings helps to highlight and spread “right actions.”
• Those chosen may represent a Cool Davis theme (low carbon footprints in transportation, consumption, and/or home/building energy use) or they may just live exemplary and inspirational “green” lives.
• The awards may be given for a particular personal effort, for volunteer efforts in the community, or for efforts in organizations and businesses, so long as the actions serve as models to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
• While giving the awards supports the goals of Cool Davis, we expect that the individuals, and possibly their organizations or businesses will enjoy and benefit from having their thoughtful actions shared widely.
