Call for Nominations: 2010 Alberta Emerald Awards

February 26, 2010

Who is your environmental hero? "Do you know someone who is doing great work in protecting, preserving, enhancing or sustaining our environment? "

Please consider nominating them (or yourself!) for an Emerald Award, which celebrates the outstanding achievements of Albertans committed to stewarding our environment. Information and the online nominations form can be found at and nominations close on Friday, February 26 at 4:00 p.m.

This year, there are nine categories of recognition:

  • Business
  • Government
  • Education: non-formal
  • Education: school or classroom
  • Community Group
  • Nonprofit Association
  • Individual
  • Youth
  • Emerald Challenge: Alberta's Oilsands

Through my involvement on the Board of Directors of the Alberta Emerald Foundation, I have seen first-hand the impact of this unique program. By celebrating environmental excellence at all levels and sharing these stories, we are helping to inspire action among more Albertans. Please help us to recognize and celebrate our environmental leaders by nominating them for an Emerald Award.

The 19th Annual Emerald Awards will be presented on Thursday June 10, 2010 in Calgary. For information about the program, please feel free to contact the Alberta Emerald Foundation office at 780-413-9629 or at [email protected]

Thank you for your interest in this important initiative and for considering nominating your 'environmental hero' for an Emerald Award.
