2018 Whole Earth and Watershed Festival Offers Environmental Stewardship Awards

The organizers of the 2018 Whole Earth and Watershed Festival are excited to recognize the efforts of teachers, students, and classes, clubs or youth groups who are actively engaged in efforts to promote environmental stewardship. 

Environmental stewardship relies on each of us working together for the sake of our planet! Let’s celebrate the efforts of the teachers, students, classes, clubs and youth groups who are leading us to a cleaner, greener future by nominating those you know!

Submission of your nominations is easy! Nominations will be accepted until March 15, 2018. All nominations will be reviewed by the Festival Executive Committee and the winners will be notified by March 31, 2018. Presentations will take place at the Festival on April 21, 2018.

Nominations can be submitted on the Whole Earth and Watershed Festival website, http://www.wholeearthandwatershedfestival.org/environmental-stewardship-awards/

At this year’s Festival, an Environmental Stewardship Award will be awarded in each of these categories: 

  • Class/Club/Youth Group Award: This honors a class (K-12), club or youth group that has changed the eco ethos of their school or organization, protected the environment and/or influenced their community in a positive way.
  • Educator Award: This award honors the achievements of an educator (K-College) who has made significant contributions to educating and impacting youth and who has inspired their class and/or school through teaching and action.
  • Student Award: This goes to a student, grade K- college, who has committed their time to care for the environment and has encouraged others in their community to do the same.

The winners of the Environmental Stewardship Awards (one in each category) will receive recognition at the Whole Earth and Watershed Festival for their outstanding efforts. They will have the opportunity to have a booth or present an informational poster at the Festival, to create a post on the Festival’s website and to share their ideas/projects with other schools and students who want to follow their example as a leader in environmental stewardship.
