Hometown Heroes Nomination Deadline
Are you one of Canada’s 2014 environmental heroes?
The most important environmental work happens at the local level. That’s why Earth Day Canada is on the search for local Hometown heroes. The hometown heroes Award Program recognizes and celebrates environmental leaders, groups and small businesses who are doing extraordinary work to create greener communities across Canada.
The Hometown Heroes Award Program is your chance to help Canada recognize and celebrate environmental leaders — whether an individual, group or small business — who foster meaningful, long-term community awareness and action.
Heroic candidates can win the Individual Hometown Heroes Award – a $10,000 cash prize to donate to a local environmental group/cause of their choice; the Group Hometown Heroes Award – a $10,000 cash prize to support their work or the Small Business Hometown Heroes Award – a $5,000 cash prize that must be used by the business to make an operational change that results in the business lessening their environmental impact, and permission from EDC to use the award and the EDC logo for one year to help market and promote the business and/or an approved product.
Nominate your hero (or yourself) by March 31, 2014 by visiting earthday.ca/hometown, and you could be awarded cash prizes and more to help further your work.
