Since 1971, the President of the United States has joined with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to recognize young people for protecting our nation's air, water, land, and ecology.
It is one of the most important ways EPA and the Administration demonstrate commitment to environmental stewardship efforts created and conducted by our nation's youth.For more information and to submit nominations, visit the President’s Environmental Youth Award webpage.
