We have some great news to share about this year’s Environmental Excellence Awards presented by SRP. Please mark your calendar for Saturday, October 6 at the Westin Kierland Resort.
First of all, we’ve extended the entry deadline to July 9. That’s seven extra days to work on your entries.
We also have some great changes to the program that will make the gala even more engaging:
New Award Categories
Does your organization have a particular person driving its sustainability efforts? Do you know a tireless advocate for improving the environment? They may be just the right candidate to take home a Crescordia in our new Sustainability Champion category, which we created to honor individual efforts. We’re also looking for organizations – waste management companies, municipalities, restaurants, hotels and other hospitality-related companies – to showcase their efforts in our Waste Reduction category.
Tuning Up the Gala
You’ll find this year’s program to be fast-paced, and a new format, which will allow more time for networking and a post-event dessert bar reception.
Display Boards Go Electronic
If you’ve previously arrived early to view the award finalist displays, you’ll notice the transition from printed displays to electronic displays. This will allow venues statewide to display the finalists simultaneously – and it will save us quite a bit of driving!
All Finalists Featured in Awards Booklet
In years past, we’ve kept you waiting to receive the project booklet. This year, all finalists will receive equal space in the brochure. And you’ll be able to see who else is in the running for a coveted Crescordia.
We hope you’re anticipating this year’s Environmental Excellence Awards just as much as we are. Thank you for making this the state’s original and longest-running celebration of sustainable innovations!
